Drive: Self-recovery without you getting out of your vehicle but using your newly acquired driving skills.
  Dig: Self-recovery that teaches you how to assess the stuck and shovel in the right places. Your Marshal will teach you the correct shovelling technique and guide you on where to dig and why to dig in order to free your vehicle quickly.
  Rope: Your Marshal will teach you the correct recovery procedure which prevents damage to both your own vehicle and the recovery vehicle and avoids injury to both drivers.
Getting geared up: Off-roading is a very popular sport here in the UAE. As such there are a myriad of products and stores all vying for your hard-earned cash. At the end of the course, your Marshal will make you aware of the most useful off-road gear to have, and other gear that is commonly used by regular offroaders in the UAE. If you already have any existing off-road gears, then your Marshal can inspect your existing gear from a safety perspective and advise you accordingly.
