Defensive driving

Our 3-day training course in defensive driving in hostile environments is specially designed by field experts and specialists in operations in isolated environments. It is designed to improve the driving skills of personnel deployed in high-risk areas. It is aimed at drivers for humanitarian or international organizations, drivers for diplomatic representations and, more generally, journalists or actors in private companies.
