Mandatory training

At step 3 you are to complete 4 hours of mandatory training. Of these, at least 3 hours will consist of independent driving in varying terrain. You will learn how to

  • adjust your driving to the terrain, weather and surface conditions, the environment and other users of nature (wildlife etc.).
  • understand the danger of overturning on uneven ground and on loosely packed snow.
  • drive with a passenger and with a loaded trailer sledge, and how to handle the challenges this involves.

Driving practice with a lay instructor

Before you start practising with a lay instructor, check the rules in force in your area.

Mandatory end-of-step assessment

Towards the end of step 3 there is a mandatory end-of-step assessment. Together, you and your instructor will assess whether you have the skills required to go to step 4.
