Hi @was003,

In order to transfer any offroad experience that you have, please kindly follow the below steps explained on the link below:

I believe only after you have done at least 1 newbie drive and you have applied for rank promotion you will be allowed to enter higher ranks drives.

Good afternoon @was003

Yes indeed, we request every new joiner to start with a Newbie drive as a minimum, and from there, after discussion with the Lead or Marshal,  you can apply to have your previous experience transferred, and if accepted, join Fewbie drives. This is to ensure our minimum rules for safely driving in convoy are well understood, and as you can guess "previous experience" can mean anything from family picnic to expert driving...

Thank you for your understanding, and I hope to see you soon in a next drive.

Dear Desert Drivers

@Zulfikhar Naiyar @Mahesh_ @Mohammad Sayawoush Azad @Pacific @Waqar Sarwar @Alphin Aloor @Joji varghese


There is a professional off-road event this weekend Dubai Baja International taking place in the area of Qudra - Solar Park - Faqa. Not sure of their exact track, but for sure they need space, and I don't want to have one of them flying into the convoy from behind a dune. 

I will relocate the starting point further South, close to Nahel


It is a bit further away from Dubai, but it is a very nice area where we can approach bigger dunes.

However, I totally understand if it doesn't match your plans for the day, and I will not blame you if you choose another drive or remove your RSVP. 

Please acknowledge reading this post by reacting or sending a message.  Thank you for your understanding.
