Eagers Holden Proving Ground

The EAGERS HOLDEN COLORADO PROVING GROUND offers visitors the chance to test drive the latest Holden Colorado courtesy of Eagers Holden and test their skills behind the wheel of a 4WD.

With a variety of surfaces to simulate being off the beaten track including a compact rock segment, timber logs and an artificial steep hill you have the chance to practice and learn how to use your 4×4 to its maximum capability with the help of the team at Eagers Holden & Four Wheel Drive Queensland. If you are new to offroading, then learn the latest best practice techniques on safety, recovery, hill stall, vehicle preparation and all-terrain driving courtesy of RTO, Four Wheel Drive Queensland.

Four Wheel Drive Queensland is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and the driver training courses undertaken are fully accredited with qualified and trained staff. Through these training courses members can expect to gain more confidence, improve skill levels and competently handle their 4WDs in various terrain conditions.
