Who is driving armored vehicles?
Anyone can drive an armored vehicle. It is a common misconception that only famous people or the military drive armored cars. Although many celebrities, politicians, sports stars and other VIP’s do drive armored vehicles, anyone can. VIP’s don’t leave their safety up to chance, and neither should you. Violent crimes and vehicle theft are both on the rise worldwide making now a great time to purchase an armored car.
Though driving an armored vehicle is similar to driving a regular vehicle. Depending on the situation and the level of threat, armored vehicle drivers may require specific skills and qualifications such as defensive driving, evasive maneuvering, and marksmanship.
In military contexts, armored vehicle drivers are part of armored or mechanized infantry units and are trained to operate various armored vehicles such as tanks, personnel carriers, and reconnaissance vehicles. They are proficient in the use of various weapons systems, communication equipment, and navigation devices, as well as working effectively with their crew members to achieve mission objectives.
In law enforcement and private security contexts, armored vehicle drivers are often employed by companies that provide cash-in-transit services which involve the secure transportation of large sums of money or other valuable assets. These drivers are typically armed and trained to respond to potential threats using specialized tactics and techniques.
Being an armored vehicle driver is a physically and mentally demanding job, requiring long hours of driving, concentration, and vigilance to protect those they are transporting. They must possess strong situational awareness and the ability to make quick decisions under stress. Armored vehicle drivers are also responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of their vehicles to ensure that they remain in top condition and are able to perform their intended function.
