World-Class Training from Overland and Expeditionary Experts

With the Overland Experience Package, you’ll have access to the best trainers in the world, regardless if you’re looking to adventure on two wheels or four. 

Overland Expo’s trainers, lead by Director of Training Chris Walker, have millions of miles and countless hours behind the wheel between them. The Overland Expo training crew uses their expertise in engineering, military training, applied sciences, and more to craft a learning environment like no other. You can learn all about Overland Expo’s vehicle trainers here.

Off-road driving courses, available to Overland Experience pass holders, cover proper winch use, rollover recovery, differential lockers, and a host of other topics.

If you’re looking for high-quality vehicle-based adventure travel training, you simply cannot find a better group of trainers than those at Overland Expo.

Dragoo Adventure Rider Training provides Overland Expo’s adventure moto training. DART is led by Bill Dragoo, a life-long adventurer with experience traveling via 4×4, mountain bike, and of course, adventure motorcycle. The list of Overland Expo’s expert moto trainers can be found here.

The DART team focuses on creating a positive and encouraging learning environment during every class to help their students build confidence on their bikes. Bill and his team use a combination of classroom learning and hands-on training to prepare their students to overcome obstacles on their future adventures.
