Escaping from the police using greenlanes/byways

Setting: Modern day, England

I seem to have written one of my characters into a corner, and so I turn to here for help.

He's an undercover intelligence agent, currently fleeing from police to maintain his cover. His ID says he is 16, and therefore not old enough to be driving. He is driving a stolen Land Rover Defender, with slight modifications for off-road/green-lane driving (suspension raised a few inches, offroad tyres, roll cage, bucket seats, harnesses instead of seatbelts, front and rear winches).

I was wondering if it would actually be possible to use green-lanes to escape from police pursuit. He is experienced in driving on these sort of roads, in a similar vehicle. And would it be possible in the Derbyshire/South Yorkshire Peak District area (where the story is currently set)?

The police are driving ordinary traffic cars; not a single 4x4 in sight.
