Executive Protection Driver Training

2 Days

“Capability breads humility.”

Executive Protection Driver Training

To become an executive protection driver requires more than defensive driving. Executive protection drivers must ensure that the principal, family, staff and guests are safe. In addition, ambushes are still a chosen tactic used by terrorists and other criminals. The element of surprise is the driving factor in a successful ambush.The initial few seconds is all a driver has in order to escape.

Participants will be taught efficient driving techniques with an emphasis on a stable driving platform.

Students will perform practical exercises forward and reverse in serpentine, steering around obstacles, controlled braking, evasive steering, confined space movement, specific backing exercises as well as backing to a place of safety on a roadway.

The effects of electronic stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes will be discussed and demonstrated in evasive maneuvers. The SkidCar System will be used to teach skid avoidance and management.

Participants will be exposed to front and rear wheel drive sedans as well as driving a sport utility vehicle. The students will drive practical exercises using correct motorcade formations.

The goal is to give drivers the skills necessary to maintain control of the vehicle at all times in all conditions and to a extract a principal from a dangerous position.
