After being in Dorset, VT for the summer we accidentally came across the Land Rover Driving School at The Equinox. We signed up for a one hour session with the instructor David Nunn. The whole experience was fun and informative and left us thinking about buying a Range Rover which we had never considered. Our instructor was professional and friendly, the car was very impressive and the course options are quite extensive depending on how much time you have.
I would highly recommend this as a one hour or an all day experience depending on your budget and your appetite for driving experiences.

They don't seem to advertise this option a lot, but for $25 a person, they will drive you on an adventure ride off road in a land rover. My husband and 10 year old loved it.

Liked the instructor and what we learned. However, we booked a Range Rover Sport and had to settle on an LR4. This took away from the learning experience and did not do much for them selling us a new car.

Land Rovers are the off-reading equivalent to a BMW. Beautifully over-engineered to take whatever you can throw at it. The Land Rover Experience in Manchester offers a full day introduction (along with other options) to just how capable these vehicles are. The full day option includes a morning session on the equivalent of an SUV obstacle course to teach you techniques before taking you on public trails in the afternoon to have a less predictable encounter with nature. The pace of the day and the diversity of off road encounters makes this a perfect experience for 2-3 people to "test drive" a Land Rover in a very unique way. The staff was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about off reading techniques as well as the entire Land Rover line of vehicles. All of this does come at a price though with a full day experience priced at $1,200 for up to five people. For the right combination of novice off roadie and car lover, we certainly found it to be an unforgettable experience.

I gave a one-hour experience to my husband as a birthday present. I have to say it was an excellent choice. Our instructor was Cortland. He was very knowledgeable and thorough about the off-roading capabilities of the vehicle as well as the terrain we were about to encounter. He was also witty and had a great sense of humor which was a good combination as my husband and I had never been off-roading before.

He gave us useful tips of what to look for and understand the capabilities of the vehicle as well as the surroundings. And we actually learned new useful things about driving and "shuffle steering".

I would recommend the experience to anyone from novice to experienced as they have a tailored approached.

Would definitely do again.
