Secret Service Agents Train For Reverse Drift And Advanced Reverse Escapes
In this article we are going to see how the secret agents are trained to drive the presidential limo. As everything is classified when it comes to this kind of information, this is just a demo showing the real skills of the driver behind the presidential limo. All Secret Service agents are supposed to learn evasive driving techniques behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger at the Moran Protective Operations Driving Course (PODC). That’s the real playground where top drivers are born. Basically all guys here should perform the J-turn. If you wonder what is this thing – a tire-screeching pivot with a tight stop and an immediate change in direction.
But that’s not the point. The following stuff seems to be more interesting. All Secret Service agents are trained how to drive the presidential limo on a ceremonial road course. This is about to happen in the The Rowley Training Center where more than 300 vehicles are available. Among all these rides are current and retired Suburbans and limos. So all of these guys are supposed to drive one of these heavily-armored limos around the track under various conditions and scenarios. In the video on our next page you are going to see of the techniques that should be learnt in the center like reverse drift, for example.
Another thing that all participants should learn is the “push out” maneuver – this situation occurs when the President’s limousine has been disabled.
