Safety is at the heart of the security driver’s concerns. This profession, even if it is not yet officially recognised by the Labour Code, is still essential to ensure the safety of people and property. This profession combines different aspects to ensure the best possible safety of travel.
Security driver: a versatile activity
A close security driver is not just a simple driver. He will naturally drive the passengers to their destination, but he also plays an important role in your safety. As a professional driver, he knows the different routes according to the desired destination. He is available and can take a diversion if the passenger wishes. But this is obviously not the only role of the “anti-aggression driver”.
He is also there, as the job title indicates, to ensure the safety of the person or persons he is driving. This protection is twofold. It is a matter of securing people during travel, but also before and after it.
He is therefore part of the close security team. He can also carry out the protection, alone, according to the needs of the passenger. He performs his protective function inside and outside the vehicle.
To fulfil this role, he must master safety driving, i.e. he must be able to secure the passenger during travel. He must be able to react immediately to various problems (assault, accident, attempted kidnapping or theft, etc.). As such, he is an expert in safe driving.
He is also an expert in physical protection. He watches, anticipates, reacts quickly and well. He can detect all potential risks and knows exactly what to do to keep his passenger safe. He can decide to extract his passenger to bring him to safety and knows what to do to do so.
He will use his skills, but also his vehicle, which, in the event of danger, becomes a real shield to ward off danger. He knows how to handle the steering wheel professionally and must be able to react without delay if he rightly considers that his passenger is in danger. He must then apply different rules depending on the type of driving to be applied: advance, carrier, VIP, safety motorbike, etc.
As a professional, he has undergone training in the field of bodyguarding. He must also have a perfect mastery of the different driving techniques (such as emergency driving, emergency braking, defensive driving, trajectory control, offensive driving, etc.) and know how to monitor and detect dangers. His function also requires him to perform various acts of first aid to help his passenger in the event of a problem.
In addition, they must have a thorough knowledge of the use of first aid equipment. Not forgetting, of course, the various protective equipment: bullet-proof waistcoat, radios, vehicle armouring elements, Kevlar protective towel, etc.
