Special Operations

We know it takes high performance driving skills to accomplish critical objectives, which is why our staff of professional drivers has been training high-profile security details, law enforcement groups, U.S. special operations units, the U.S. Marshal Service, and the FBI for 20+ years.

The official driving school of Dodge//SRT is situated on the largest, purpose-built driver training facility in North America. We are capable of organizational level events or discreet low-profile training on our 450-acre facility including five different tracks and a 2.4-mile oval racing lake.

Radford Racing School has systematically designed its Executive Protection Program (EPP) courses around current requirements in the full range of tactical environments. These courses deliver instructional techniques and experiences to operators through efficient, effective, and engaging conditions at the required levels of proficiency. They are graded against safe, measurable, and proven standards. Additionally, programs can be custom tailored to meet your team’s specific needs and requirements.

These courses use repetition, speed, and power to create a pressurized environment that will transition students from driving under stress to managing stress while driving. New techniques on driving a range of vehicles, and how to tap into the depths of concentration and emotional control will be instructed. This ability to make hyper-focused micro-decisions at high speeds will maximize vehicle performance and ensure safe mission accomplishment.

*Courses can be purchased in multiples and ran in unison for larger teams.

Executive Protection (EPP)

Executive Protection Program (EPP) is designed to transition everyday drivers to high performance vehicle operators. Daily driving habits are quickly broken down and replaced with new vehicle management techniques specifically designed for executive protection events. 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.
