Protective Driving Training Course

Our three-day course has been specifically designed for Hong Kong by an experienced light-infantry forces veteran, covering authentic driving conditions and situations.

 

Upon successful completion, internationally recognized certificates are issued which are accredited by one of the most important worldwide agencies in vehicle accident prevention, The Royal Society of Accident Prevention.

Our commitment is to raise protective driving standards and ensure that all trainees are adequately equipped to face real-life situations.

 

Delivery Method

Students will undertake a course based on 50% theoretical training and 50% practical training to ensure the knowledge and skills acquired are applied correctly within a real-life context. The course follows a 4:1 instructor/student ratio to ensure a personalized learning experience.

Course Content

All delegates will learn advanced vehicle control skills, vehicle dynamics and safety systems, security driving techniques and convoy driving procedures. Participants will carry out a final exercise in which they will put into practice all the content learned throughout the course by facing simulated scenarios. Students will understand the importance of maintaining full situational awareness in order to make quick decisions and avoid potential dangers.

The students will undertake several theoretical and practical assessments throughout the training programme. All those who successfully pass the assessments will receive an internationally recognised Protective Driving Training Certificate approved by the Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents.
