Delegates/learners will undertake driver training both theoretically and practically, to enable them to become a Security Chauffeur .  This is not a course to teach you how to clean the vehicle, this course teaches you ‘avoidance through awareness’.  You and your client are generally most vulnerable when you pick-up and drop off.  Being able to be switched on and identify the unusual requires training, knowledge, and then regular practice.  Until you know what you are looking for, you will never see it.  If you are a private chauffeur/driver or work for a large corporation, this course will enhance your skills and reputation.  Course covers, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Vehicle preparation (POWDERY checks
