Tactical Driving Techniques (TDT) is designed to transition everyday tactical drivers to high-performance vehicle operators. Daily driving habits are quickly broken down and replaced with 40 hours of new vehicle management techniques specifically designed for mission accomplishment. 90% of training time will be spent behind the wheel of five different types of vehicles on four different tracks. Deliberate operational risk management and medical planning lower the residual risk of this course to a low level and are available upon request. Student performance is measured using progress checks to ensure progression before advanced operations and are available upon course completion.
Ground skills training will prepare operators for confined space driving and autocross in the Dodge Durango SRT, leading into open space driving and highspeed full track training in the Dodge Charger SRT. It is common for operators to believe they are driving slower through the week while actually culminating in faster lap times. An accurate indicator of rapid and sustained focus while operating under pressure.
Defensive driving in Dodge Charger SRT skid cars, Ford Crown Victorias, and demolition vehicles will expose operators to situations that require unorthodox vehicular solutions to accomplish the mission while minimizing the risk to force. Advanced techniques like vehicle 180s are instructed, but most importantly, paired with the ability to analyze maneuver risk and select the best method to maximize performance and preserve the vehicle.
Mechanical skills on wheels, brakes, and cooling systems are instructed to ensure vehicle preservation for mission accomplishment, followed by techniques on vehicle commandeering and alternate starting methods. The training culminates in a series of full mission profiles that present operators with ambiguous scenarios that require rapid decision making and vehicle management under pressure for time.
