Why Taking The Protective Driving Course

The course incorporates tactical driving with tactical shooting training.

Our protective driving course best suits security professionals wanting to enhance their skill set as well as those of you who due to the job occupation or any other reason seek tactical driving competence.


A security driver plays a significant part in a close protection team since a Principal is most vulnerable during a movement, and a vast majority of attacks are undertaken during vehicle transport. Likewise, road safety in some parts of the world remains the biggest concern. Hence, it is of utmost importance for protection specialists and high-risk professions as well as for civilians working in hostile environments to undergo tactical driver training to gain proficiency to reduce threats.


With this in mind, Nemesis Protection, as an all-around security services provider, has developed this unique course to teach you how to manage and maneuver a vehicle in challenging situations and respond to ambush-style attacks while maintaining a high level of security awareness required. The course is ideal for those who are working or traveling or living in areas where road safety poses a big security issue due to threats such as road ambush, kidnapping, hijacking, and alike.

Our company has adopted a training philosophy – train as you will operate – underpinning our training principles to deliver the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course for candidates.
