Our driving safety course is developed for those who have to operate armored vehicles under demanding circumstances in unsafe or openly hostile environments. Participants receive an intensive training for the safe operation of different kinds of vehicles. Theoretical aspects such as driving dynamics, vehicle inspection and route-planning are covered in interactive classroom lectures. In various practical training exercises course participants get the opportunity to develop their skills of handling both standard 4WD as well as VR7- (formerly B6) and VR9- (formerly B7) armored vehicles safely under different circumstances.
 
Our fleet of training vehicles:
  • Toyota Landcruiser LC200 - VR7 (formerly B6) armored, 4WD.
  • Toyota Landcruiser LC200 - VR9 (formerly B7) armored, 4WD.
  • Mercedes G 63 AMG, VR7 armored, 4WD
  • Land Rover Discovery (4WD)
  • Mercedes Unimog (heavy off-road vehicle)
  • Audi Q7 (SUV)

Note that you can bring your own vehicle(s).
