If you want to enjoy a highly rewarding career in the area of Protection of VIPs, top Executives, Celebrities, top Politicians, senior Government Officials, Diplomats and Expatriates and their families as a skilled and highly competent Security Driver, then you are in the right place.
Today due to the challenges of increasing insecurity, people with training and competency in security driving are now in hot demands because they represent key security asset to VIPs, Celebrities, Dignitaries and their families. Indeed, at a time when deliberate attacks, ambushes, accidents, kidnappings, terror assaults, carjacking and other random violent criminal attacks have become all too frequent occurrences, one of the most significant elements in optimizing VIP protection is Protective Security Driving. In fact, most attacks on VIPs take place outside their protected environments and the majority while in their vehicles. Statistically, the chance of injury to a VIP or a security team from a car accident, either random or planned, is even greater than being a victim of a terror attack.

This training course will build the competency, capacity and confidence of graduates of this course to operate in hostile, hazardous and dangerous environments.
This unique course will provide the essential tools those interested in security driving need to deal with extra ordinary situations, it will transforms ordinary executive chauffeurs and security drivers into an essential and integrated resource as a security asset instead of a risk. After all, a poorly trained driver could just be the VIP’s worst enemy.

The course offers the optimum mix of hands-on, behind-the-wheel vehicle manoeuvring techniques, practical knowledge, proactive planning and safety. Strong emphasis is placed on the synergy between driving skills and the driver’s integral role on the security team. The course covers the threats facing security drivers and their passengers, such as ambushes, accidents, terror assaults, carjacking and kidnappings.
