Aguieus Tactical/Evasive Driving Course

Course Cost: $5550.00 USD (Includes: Lodging, Transportation, and Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Daily)

This is a 5 day course of intensive driver training that includes lectures, practical exercises, demonstrations, and operational environment scenarios. Students will be trained to operate standard and high center of gravity vehicles (SUV’s) in all environments and situations they may encounter while executing their mission.

This Course was initially designed for Foreign Service National Drivers attached to embassies around the world, and has been attended by several agencies, including DOS, DOJ, and DOD personnel.

This course includes:

4 days driving on hard surface - Professional driving skills including braking techniques and skid control maneuvers, handling multiple vehicles that are attempting to force the vehicle off road, understanding over/under steering a vehicle, dynamics of avoiding obstacles, emergency braking and turns, evasive maneuvers -- and reverse 180 degree turns (J-turns), techniques for countering ambushes, tactical ramming, barricade breeching, pushing vehicles and obstacles with a vehicle, situational exercises simulating vehicular attacks, preventing the vehicle from being run off road or stopped, correct escaping maneuvers, driving under fire, emergency procedures, handling the vehicle in an obstacle course, correct functioning while being pursued, high speed vehicle maneuvers.

1 day off road driving - Dynamics of off road driving, avoiding obstacles, driving over obstacles and off road self recovery techniques.

Situational awareness - Route planning/route selection, counter surveillance, vehicle kit selection and layout, pre-mission vehicle checks, and final training exercise consisting of operational environment scenarios. These skills will be taught and reinforced throughout the course.

Having significant current experience in high threat operations, and having intimate knowledge and experience in both low and high profile motorcade operations, site security, route reconnaissance, defensive anti-terrorist driving, surveillance detection, counter-surveillance, sensitive site exploitation, experience in instructing current operations and hostile environment training, and each having survived numerous insurgent attacks with no casualties or injuries to principals under their protection, Aguieus's principals, and its cadre of instructors are uniquely prepared to provide trainees the necessary “real world,” experience-based, tactical driving training that is required to accomplish mission objectives - and survive.
