If you travel around the world frequently, a security driver who knows you and understands your goals in life is a person you can trust and rely on. Experience in the protection industry shows that a client is most vulnerable when traveling. Sometimes, your security driver can function as a close protection officer as well (when driving is not required).

In this article, you will discover whether protective driving is a skill or a talent, why experience matters, and why a private security driver can make all the difference.


A professional security driver has a natural talent for excellent driving. Besides being apt learning how to drive under normal conditions, there are specific advanced and relevant skills required for this high-responsible job. He or she:

  • Is a security-trained individual with a strong background and qualifications. Our drivers are all certified close protection officers.
  • Can control a vehicle exceptionally well under various circumstances. Our tactical driving course include driving at high-speeds, low-profile driving, offroad driving and agressive defensive driving.
  • Understands the vehicle you use. This means he or she knows its technical abilities and its limits and how to keep going (if possible) in the case of malfunctions.
  • Knows how to search the vehicle for safety, including checking for any tracking devices and explosives.
  • Is able to spot criminal or suspicious behaviour to prevent incidents in an early stage by using surveillance detection techniques.
  • Knows the safest routes to take you to your destinations. This includes an assessment prior to the security driving operation and memorizing alternative routes and emergency safe havens.
  • Anticipates surroundings during the journey, assesses traffic and profiles other road users at all times.
  • Knows which attributes to take in the car: video cameras, bulletproof vests, extra water, medical equipment etc.
  • Knows how to contact authorities and medics if necessary, as well as resuscitate and provide advanced first aid before the first responders arrive.


In most cases, a security driver cannot act as your bodyguard at the same time. This especially applies when you travel under high-risk circumstances. Hire a private security chauffeur (also referred to as a bodyguard driver), for safety and security reasons, if you:

  • Have been threatened with e.g. kidnap, assault or an attack
  • Have been blackmailed or received threats to be blackmailed
  • Need to travel through or be in areas with high-criminal activities
  • Need to travel through hostile enviroments
  • Or if your position as an individual attracts a lot of media attention (e.g. artist, singer, TV-host, CEO, politician, etc.)

If you find yourself in one of the positions above, we advise you to contact an executive protection company and discuss your situation. After assessing your situation in detail, a combination of protective services and a team of close protection officers can execute a plan of action to keep you safe at all times.


A person who has been with you for a more extended period of time knows your situation. You don’t have to explain your personal circumstances and preferences over and over again. Details about an upcoming trip will suffice. He or she can prepare the upcoming trip, advance routes and react more adequately than a stranger.

Wherever you go in the world, you can contact Infinite Risks International for a reliable, expert executive protection driver.
