The ability to detect and identify Vehicle Detection requires a keen understanding of how the surveillance team operates. Before the monitoring team implements active vehicle monitoring, it will try to access the target's normal driving mode. This planning phase of the operation allows the surveillance team to seamlessly reflect the target's vehicle maneuvers without being affected, while following.

The main goal of vehicle surveillance targets is to expose any potential surveillance vehicles without causing surveillance alarms. Once the surveillance team receives an alert, it may actively pursue the target, or more sophisticated surveillance techniques can be used as countermeasures.

The target can perform specific vehicle maneuvers to expose potential surveillance without being compromised. Every operation must be performed flawlessly to avoid alarming the surveillance team. Based on previous knowledge of the target’s normal driving pattern, Vehicle Detection operators are trained to predict the possible operations that the target may attempt.

A vehicle monitoring team is operating based on a keen understanding of the target's normal driving patterns. Some drivers tend to drive the speed limit, while others usually exceed the speed limit. For example, if a target who is considered to be driving carefully suddenly starts to drive faster, vehicle monitoring may consider the operation as suspicious or aggressive and react accordingly. The same situation applies to a known target driving irregularly or exceeding a speed limit, and then starting to drive slowly or more cautiously while monitoring the vehicle following.

In order to Detect Vehicle Detection and avoid alerting potential surveillance, any driving pattern changes made by the target must appear normal or reasonable. For example, in order to expose a surveillance vehicle, the target may turn around. If the target is a careful driver, a sudden U-turn will warn the surveillance vehicle behind. Therefore, the target must perform a U-turn for reasonable reasons.

For example, if there are too many vehicles in the left lane waiting to turn left at the upcoming intersection, the target vehicle can turn around at the next available legal point to avoid traffic jams. Performing maneuvers in this way is not considered necessarily subject to the suspicion of the surveillance team. However, by turning around, the surveillance vehicle needs to react and is likely to drive off the road or into a nearby parking lot to recapture the target.

After performing a U-turn, the target can safely record and identify any vehicles that suddenly leave the road or enter the parking lot. Normally, for fear of exposure, surveillance vehicles will not mirror the same U-turn.

Another type of vehicle manipulation used to expose potential vehicle surveillance involves a target driving on a highway. Given the speed and coverage of other vehicles, the vehicle monitoring team does have the advantage of being able to track targets without being spotted. To detect vehicle surveillance, the target may decide to get off at the nearest exit, then move on without warning, not turn left or right, and re-enter the highway traveling in the same direction. Again, this will cause the surveillance vehicle to either mirror the same pattern, the target can be used for exposure surveillance, or to stop tracking. If the surveillance vehicle reflects the target's maneuverability, the risk of the surveillance vehicle is exposed if the tracked target is paying attention.

There are other vehicle operations that can be used to detect vehicle monitoring. If performed properly, these operations are very effective. Regardless of the maneuvers or tactics used, the main goal of the target is to expose surveillance work without causing surveillance alarms. The vehicle monitoring team will make every effort to understand how the target may react in various situations and scenarios. This operation phase allows the vehicle monitoring team to effectively monitor or track the target after the start of the formal operation.
