Time Taken: One round or longer.

Ground vehicle operation covers primitive wheeled and tracked land vehicles, including Jawa sandcrawlers, the Rebel personnel transports on Yavin IV, personal transportation cars and bikes, and cargo haulers. Some military vehicles — such as the Empire's Juggernaut and PX-4 Mobile Command Base — also utilize wheeler track-technology.

Ground vehicle operation is seldom needed on modern worlds — where repulsorlift vehicles are very common — but this primitive technology is often used on low-tech worlds.

Ground vehicle operation can be used for a vehicle dodge — a "reaction skill" — to avoid enemy fire.
