The diversity of vehicles used today demands that training include a variety of training vehicles including rear-wheel drive sedans, high center-of-gravity SUVs, two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, both automatic and standard transmissions. O'Gara Training Facility & Academy-Montross currently operates and maintains 34 specially prepared training vehicles.
For our off-road fleet we utilize Jeep Grand Cherokees, Jeep Commanders, and Ford Explorers to instruct on unimproved roads and off-road courses, employing both 2-wheel-drive (2WD) and 4 wheel-drive (4WD). These vehicles are extensively modified to best withstand the hard use of off-road driving. Each is equipped with the full complement of tools necessary for off-road support (winch, hi-lift jack, snatch blocks, chains, straps, gloves, shovels, etc.). A fleet of disposable cars, including operable sedans and target cars, are available for purchase or rental, depending upon the specified use.
At OTF-M saftey comes first. Inside our newly remodeled Tactical Operations Center, O'gara operates a 22,100 sq. ft. fully-equiped vehicle service area to keep our vehicle fleet in top notch running order ensuring our vehicles run safely in the high performance conditions required for advanced driver's training.
