Across Asia the Senior-Management Teams and VIP's of major multi-national companies are constantly under threat from attack for profit, politics, industrial espionage or opportunity.
Even a traffic incident with a member of the public or their prized animal can quickly escalate into a hostile situation.
SDT - Secure Driver Training offer driver development programs which can be tailored to enhance the capabilities of drivers to mitigate risk and avoid hostile situations like carjacking, robbery, kidnapping and assassination.
Situations which can and do occur in developing countries like Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, the Philippines, East Timor, Indonesia India and many large cities in the region.
Our instructors are highly experienced in the driving and security aspects of this course. Our people have operated in these countries, are up-to-date on the threat levels and have experienced and dealt with hostile situations.
This course is for self-drive expatriate workers or national drivers who transport executives from multi-nationals, plus drivers of high-net worth individuals and VIP's. If participants have not undertaken advanced driver training before the course is 3-days..otherwise more experienced drivers can elect to attend the last 2 days.
This program will culminate with theoretical, practical and real-life scenario based assessment. To maximise the effectiveness and reflect the importance of proficiency of the content the student : instructor ratio for the course is limited to 6:1.

SDT uses unique content filmed and photographed in-house.
We have staged our own scenarios with vehicles under simulated hostile situations and live-fire.
Unlike other training providers we are not running a stunt driving experience for cashed-up adrenalin junkies wanting a Hollywood type driving experience. We provide a tailored product that caters to the specific client needs , whilst always providing the highest quality in training delivery, skill development and maximum participation of practical components for high skill retention.
A unique feature is the use of Skid Tyres to allow advanced skid control driver training to be delivered in developing countries that lack dedicated driver training facilities.
Due to the sensitive nature of this training, past clients must remain anonymous; however programs have been run for famous individuals and for Senior Management Teams from multi-national oil/gas companies, embassy drivers, bodyguards and the Australian Military have undertaken many refresher programs with us, prior to deployment in Iraq.
