CLOSE PROTECTION DRIVING TRAINING
Our Close Protection Driving Training day will give you a real and raw experience of what’s taught to some of the best frontline operators in the world, including:
- The Special Forces (SAS)
- Armed Police
- Surveillance Operators
- Bodyguards responsible for looking after VIPs
This day is intense, it’s rigorous and it’s fast paced.
It goes way beyond just seeing how good a driver you are. Because the best part? Our grand finale…
A real-life role play scenario, where you’ll be thrown head-first into a real world situation that the Special Forces, Armed Police and Bodyguards are trained and ready for.
You’ll start the day by being launched straight into a surveillance mission guided by one of our expert instructors. You’ll need to keep your wits about you for any threats that might catch you out.
We use ordinary cars to blend in on our undercover mission but you’ll be amazed at just how much performance you can get from an ordinary car in the hands of a professional. Later in the day you’ll learn how to push an ‘everyday’ car to its absolute limits.
This is where you’ll learn the evasive manoeuvres that the Special Forces use to evade threats, including:
- The J-Turn. One of the best manoeuvres to escape from trouble ahead
- The Handbrake-turn. One of the most effective ways to avoid a head-on threat
- Advanced front wheel drive techniques including weight transfer and threshold braking
Once you’ve mastered the advanced manoeuvres, it’s time to put everything together as we prepare you for an experience you won’t forget.
Strapped into your vehicle, you’re providing some undercover surveillance on a high-profile target. As you’re reporting back to the HQ you notice some unusual behaviour.
You then realise your cover has been blown. There’s only one thing for it. You need to make a sharp exit if you want to avoid capture.
As the target car fast approaches you from the front, you slam it in reverse at speed, pulling a textbook J-turn. You then enter the tight and twisty course at high speed, to make your getaway, whilst avoiding any obstacles that get in your way.
If the situation dictates, you drive as fast as possible to a pre-arranged rendezvous to meet with a waiting getaway car.
This might sound like a lot to deal with…In a REAL life scenario it would be!
You will have one of our first-class instructors by your side, giving you the support and advice, keeping you cool, calm, and collected, so that you can execute your well-practiced moves with precision and accuracy.
Once you get out of the danger zone and to safety, you’ll make your way back to HQ to be debriefed by the training staff. And that concludes the real-life role play exercise.
Our guarantee is that you will walk away armed with a new set of driving skills.
