Our Leader and Our Instructors
Vince Cobley as been involved in the off road world for over 25 years, taking part on, organising and winning many world class events (his eldest son Edward is also a leading name in the off road world in the UK and Luke his youngest son was Land Rovers top instructor in 2013), from the Jungles of Malaysia to the Pyrenees & Croatia mountains and across the Moroccan deserts, his knowledge and experience is second to none.
All our Instructors are taught at our world-class training facility, some have military backgrounds while others have exceptional skills in other areas but all have an outstanding knowledge of terrain, vehicles and conditions worldwide and all have Land Rover Senior or Lead instructor qualifications.
Pro-Trax is dedicated to ensuring that its ‘go anywhere’ philosophy does not have an adverse effect on the environment and off-road tuition lies at the heart of this.
Which is why the ‘Fragile Earth’ policy has been instigated for use on all of our courses and at all of our centres, to ensure that the use of 4×4 vehicles has the minimum impact on the flora and fauna.
Pro-Trax was a founder member of BORDA and all instructors have gone through Land Rover, Lead or Senior instructor courses, We can also offer Land Rover, LANTRA and BORDA accredited courses.
Our Tixover venue is a 81 acre disused sandstone quarry with skilfully designed areas to enhance all types of off-road driving disciplines, this is a site used by us for 45% of our training and is also where various magazines and TV companies use for features and articles.
