All Terrain Driving

G4S Risk Consulting’s Specialist Training department offers the All-Terrain Driving course to provide delegates with the necessary skills and techniques to drive safely on and off road


Our all-terrain driving course will provide delegates with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to be able to drive safely on and off road by giving them the self-belief to safely pilot a vehicle over a wide range of terrain and obstacles.

Through a series of training modules and practical exercises, drivers will learn how to mitigate the risks to safety and security whilst maintaining control of a vehicle through challenging and hazardous situations.

Our team of highly experienced instructors are all former UK Special Forces personnel who have recognised civilian teaching and approved driving instruction (ADI) qualifications.
