Soon after, you are driving on beginner woodland terrain including hills, trees, rocks and more. All training is safety focused with themes of people, vehicle and environmental preservation. To mitigate pandemic risks, your time at NORA is outdoors and in your vehicle. All staff and guests must wear face coverings and maintain social distancing.
