 Colin Burden from TRACKWISE 4WD LTD has over 30 years experience owning and driving many types of 4WD vehicles. Colin is a Registered Workplace Assessor in the transport/motor industry, a fully qualified 4WD driver trainer/assessor, has had several years experience as a Technology teacher, and holds an Advanced Trade Certificate in Automotive Engineering.

The majority of Colin’s training is in the Northland and Auckland regions but he also does company training in other parts of the North Island when required. His passion for 4WD vehicles and their off-road ability has been a way of life with a mixture of club, touring, vehicle building and training activities. He specialises in training people who have standard 4WD’s to get the most out of their vehicle without damage to themselves, the vehicle or environmentally sensitive areas.

Colin is used as a preferred trainer/assessor by several large Private Companies and Government organisations including the Police, Department of Conservation, Regional and Local Councils, Worksafe NZ, Search and Rescue, Engineers, Geotechnical, Forestry workers, Power line maintenance crews, On-location film crews, overseas adventure tour groups and many more people from all walks of life. Several groups also use Colin as an advisor on environmental issues relating to 4WD activities and vehicles/equipment purchases. He provides anything from a basic practical 4WD course to a full NZQA course to fit a client’s requirements. 

TRACKWISE 4WD LTD also provides a VEHICLE RECOVERY SERVICE from beaches and on-road. (Write this number down just in case: 0800 200 227)

If you have only driven your 4WD on the suburban streets (and beyond) then find out exactly what your 4x4 can really do. 

Have you ever wanted to drive your 4WD vehicle like a pro? Wish you could get the maximum amount of extreme fun out of ‘off roading’ then take a course with Trackwise 4wd Limited. The training venues that Colin uses at Auckland are Woodhill forest in North West Auckland and Castaways Resort South West Auckland. 4WDriving is a way of life for Colin and he is always happy to engage others in this exciting and infectious activity.
