WHY WITH SPEEDSKILLS?
" Mick, during his service, was a member of an elite team of officers, known to security bodies across the world. The art form that creates the basis of professional security driving (encompassing Anti Hi-Jack training) was taught by Mick. Anyone who has witnessed his car control will understand that the statement "master" doesn't really do him justice. If you, or your company, have need of training, in the UK or overseas, look no further. I am proud to have attended his training and am confident that, if necessary, I would be prepared. "
Andy Brown, Retired Metropolitan Police Sergeant (SEG)
