Counter-Ambush Driving Course


TUITION:  TBA  (PAYMENT IN FULL required at time of registration)



Course description:

On any given day you could find yourself stuck in snarling traffic, surrounded on all sides by other cars and frustrated, angry folks.  This just happens to be your unlucky day.  You're stuck in gridlock traffic and there doesn’t seem to be any openings in front of you and a couple of cars are behind you.  Two road-ragers have gotten out of their vehicles and are about to start a death fight.  It’s starting to get nasty, and you, rightfully so, are fearing for the safety of your family, but you’re boxed in.  What do you do now?  Car-jackings, kidnappings, random violent attacks, unexpected angry mob gatherings… We’ve certainly turned a corner in our unsettled society.  Things are changing rapidly and we must enhance our level of preparedness so we can better protect ourselves and our loved ones.


As part of our Armed Citizen Building Blocks series of courses, APT Firearms Academy will now offer a Vehicle Counter-Ambush Driving course.  In this course, you will learn how to fight your way out of an entanglement of stalled, parked, or abandoned cars.  You will learn AND practice pushing and shoving your way out of a KILL ZONE created by stalled cars.  You’ll find out first-hand how difficult it can be, even with a heavy vehicle, to create enough space in a traffic jam to get off the “X”.  You will learn how situational awareness, along with an understanding of your vehicle’s capabilities and use of the proper techniques will get you and your family out of that KILL ZONE to safety.


We will teach you the weak points and fail points on vehicles for pushing and shoving, how that knowledge can be used to your advantage during a fight, and how to harden those points on your own vehicle for better resistance and fight-performance.  We will also teach you how to assess the battle space around your vehicle to immediately recognize escape routes and how to set yourself up for better success no matter what street or highway you might find yourself on.


The 2-day COUNTER-AMBUSH DRIVING course is an entry level vehicle operation class with open enrollment, however, space is limited, so register early and make your travel plans accordingly.


APT Firearms Academy will provide the necessary safety gear, but you’re always welcome to bring your own equipment.  Safety gear provided will include:

  • Crash Helmet – with clear visor or full goggles

  • Bite Guard

  • Neck Brace

  • Gloves


DON’T WORRY – We’re providing the vehicles!!!
