Client requirements and threat specific details are evaluated to provide the most suitable vehicles for both training and operational purposes. Clients may of course provide their own vehicles upon proof of suitability and relevant insurance cover.

Set Up

The structures for all courses involve a series of presentations, providing the students with enough theory to successfully raise both their levels of understanding and professionalism to enable them to carry out the practical sessions successfully.

Advanced Training

Once students are able to show a thorough understanding of the system of car control, further advanced techniques can be added, for example:

Close Protection driving techniques Convoy Drills Anti-Hijack Skills with adverse handling & ramming techniques Mobile anti and counter surveillance drills


Upon completion and full attendance, detailed course evaluation reports can be provided by prior arrangement.
