This Carnity offroad certification aims for the enthusiast who ventures off-road as a hobby. So that they can learn the basics first and then know the skills required to grow and record their off-road progress in a clear and transparent manner.

The idea for such initiative is to offer a safe off-roading experience for hobbyist, that has no classification yet between an experienced off-roader who understand the risk, techniques, and skills involved from a novice off-roader.

      The Carnity off-road club grading structure provides you with a clear road map for your off-road journey, rewarding offroaders based on their Capability, Contribution and Commitment.
      This lets you navigate your own path as you gain experience while keeping you, other drivers and your vehicle safe.
      Driving with graded routes for your level and similar level off-roaders maximizes the fun for everyone without causing unwanted delays or pushing your vehicle beyond your limits.
      With an aim of continuous improvement, we have clarified, improved and developed the grading structure. 
      Consistent with Carnity's commitment to community and contribution, there are now special benefits for senior off-roaders who commit to sharing the Carnity long-term vision and contributing to the success and growth of Carnity and it's off-road club.

      As per the guideline and structure of Carnity Off-road club we strictly limit one single driver/offroader per user profile per drive.
      The person who has RSVP’d the event will be ONLY allowed to drive during the whole drive. If any two user share the same vehicle, then they can drive independently on any drive, but they are not allowed to switch during the same drive.
      Anyone who is not a member of Carnity Off-road Club is not allowed to drive at any time.
      Failing to comply with this requirement will restrict your growth in off-road club and also trip lead might refuse to provide an assistance in case of recovery or emergency breakdown.
      To fairly identify offroader growth and assign him/her appropriate off-road rank to join appropriate level drives. To legally indemnify the user of the vehicle so that he/she holds the full responsibility of their vehicle and actions. Step-by-step training is for each individual and when you share the training, you will learn less than other offroaders. You will tend to slow down the entire convoy due to lesser learning and practice overtime. You will increase the risk of substantially damaging your own vehicle.
