Defensive Driving

Fleet Services requires those who operate fleet vehicles, on at least a monthly basis, to take the National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course (DDC) as soon as practical after accepting employment, and every four years thereafter. This includes student workers. Training for those who operate fleet vehicles less than monthly is at the discretion of agency trainers or risk managers. Fleet Services also requires those who have been involved in a motor vehicle accident with a State Fleet vehicle, or those who have received a traffic citation while operating a State Fleet vehicle in the past 12 months, to attend the DDC course within the calendar year of the accident or citation.

The University Police and Safety Office (UP&SO) encourages those who operate State Fleet vehicles less than monthly to attend the DDC class also, keeping in mind that priority will be given to those who meet the requirements above. 

While the UP&SO recommends that individuals attend the DDC class in person, in instances where this is not feasible an online version is available. Please contact Monty Botschner at or 231-5637 for access to the online version.
