EVASIVE DRIVING TRAINING (EDT)
Our range of Evasive Driving Training courses focus on developing specific skills for
- Thrill-seeking petrol heads who want to enjoy the most exhilarating and exciting day out available anywhere
- Professionals in the security or stunt industries and military or police personnel who wish to enhance their skill-set
The emphasis is on learning to extract the maximum performance from a vehicle, typically an average, un-assuming medium sized car and practicing repeatedly in order to competently execute advanced driving manoeuvres under high pressure.
- Undercover, vehicle-mounted static surveillance operational profile
- Plain clothes; basic surveillance equipment
- Ordinary, low-profile, Front Wheel Drive FWD medium-sized cars
- Surveillance operators on vehicle-mounted undercover operations to react to and evade threats and respond rapidly to tactical situations.
- Reaction to threat drills
- Advanced handling and evasive manoeuvres including J-turns and handbrake turns
- Exploiting maximum car performance
- FWD High speed cornering techniques
- High Pressure consolidation exercise against the clock
This course is the next step after the successful completion of the EDT 1 course. Advanced Evasive Driving techniques for surveillance operators will build on the fundamentals developed during EDT 1. As before, the programme training objectives are to use ordinary FWD cars on a sealed surface, together with plain clothes/surveillance kit for under-cover operations. Having revised and consolidated the fundamental skills taught in EDT 1, highspeed FWD cornering skills form the majority of the EDT 2 programme. An extremely intense high-pressure final exercise will pressure-test every evasive manoeuvre and technique taught in EDT 1 & EDT 2 in an immersive, realistic scenario.
