| One of the items that's been on my To Do list for long time is to get something like excutive chauffeur/executive protection driving class in, with my significant other.
Don't think it's much different than LE vehicle training except perhaps for more counter surveillance stuff.
Just looking for suggestions on what schools & instructors to consider?
I'm aware of Scotti and maybe one or two other buried in my notes.
But don't have anything very current on the topic, I'm not a racing enthusiast.
Though on somewhat related note we, gf & myself, plan to do casual Road Rally together.
IMHO the Rally is good practice for bugout or navigation in unfamiliar territory.
RoadRally is a scenic drive with a purpose, a chance to enjoy a day with a friend, the least expensive form of motorsport and as one participant described it, “The most intense thing I have ever done.”
Considering that his, “most intense thing” was done on a public road without ever breaking any laws in a car with absolutely no modifications – it’s clear that RoadRally is much more than a simple phrase can describe.
Because events do not involve speed, teams do not need specialized equipment for their car. Although there are classes for vehicles with RoadRally-specific equipment on them, often teams will do the events with only pens, paper and a wristwatch. On the rare occasion the RoadRally is held at night, a small flashlight might be needed. Entry fees for the events are typically less than $40, and often events will even have classes for RoadRally novices.
RoadRally starts months in advance when organizers plan a route for teams to follow, determine safe and legal speeds for each portion and then write up step-by-step instructions on where to drive using distance, landmarks or even mystery-style clues for teams to follow.
