The FRS have launched two female only tractor driving courses following a high level of demand for female tailored training in tractor operating. On the 26th of June, women from all over the country flocked to Roscrea for the tractor driving course which was developed solely with female drivers in mind.  

Several training courses are being run by the FRS in Tipperary, with 2 different courses (Safe Tractor Driving Course for Women 18 + and Tractor Driving Course for Women) taking place at the FRS Training Centre Roscrea over the coming months.  

The next course in Tipperary being run by the FRS for female farmers looking to improve their tractor driving skills is set to take place in their Roscrea centre on the 3rd of September.

These courses being facilitated by the FRS will cover the following areas of tractor driving:  practical driving skills, safety checks before starting, setting up a good driving position, safe driving, hitching tractors to other implements, operating tailed machinery from a tractor and checking the terrain.
