I received the V-FORCE Training evasive driving course as a birthday gift so my first contact with them was on receiving instructions for the day.

Communication from V-FORCE was clear and straight forward. They provided all the information I needed to find the venue, what to expect and documents I needed to bring along with me. This included information on how Covid regulations would be implemented.

On arrival I received a warm welcome and was introduced to the team. After a briefing and introduction to the course we headed out to the cars to undertake a surveillance operation. It was during this operation that I realised what I had let myself in for.

The action started straight away and before I knew it we were being surrounded by armed gunmen and in a frenzy of screeching tyres, shouting, a high speed chase, gunfire, hand break skids and utter confusion (on my part) my calm and collected driver turned to me and said “you’ll be doing this by the end of the day”. I was blown away, it felt real and the day only got better.

I cannot fault the whole experience. The friendly nature of the V-FORCE Team is welcoming and reassuring. I felt completely safe right from the start.

The vehicles are in great condition and were sanitised and inspected by the team and mechanic after every driver swap and the instructors are highly skilled. There are strict health and safety guidelines and all members of the team made sure they were followed. 

I struggled with a couple of the manoeuvres but my instructor made time to give me extra tuition so I was confident and capable of completing the big finale and wow what a finale it is! I felt the whole team was invested in making my experience the best it could be. 

It is clear to see that this is a group of highly skilled people all working together to give you an outstanding experience and the professionalism of the team is visible right from the start. I feel I have gained confidence when driving due to the skills I learned on the course.

The school run will never be the same again and I can’t wait to do another course with them.
