EVASIVE DRIVING SKILLS

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.

  • 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.

ADVANCED EDT2

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.
