The Professional Security Driver course is an interactive three-day workshop developed for participants who are responsible for transporting executives, VIPs, persons at risk or hotel guests if working in the hospitality industry. It is also a mandatory entry course for anyone without experience wanting to enter the Executive Protection industry and take the Executive Protection Officer Basic course.

Participants on this workshop will learn an efficient approach to driving and maintaining the vehicles they will be responsible for. They will also come to understand the effects of human factors, such as attitude and fatigue on driving performance.

The course will help participants to focus on developing a systematic and defensive approach to hazard management and risk reduction, including improved awareness and observation of potential road risks. They will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully transport their passengers and to react in a favourable manner in the event of an unfortunate incident.
