Volunteer Driver Safety Course Created as a project of the National Volunteer Transportation Center
The course is self-paced, and takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete. Topics include:
- Communication with passengers
- Safety of the volunteer's vehicle
- Defensive driving
- Avoiding distractions
- Liability and insurance
Following each topic's presentation, the volunteer will be asked a series of multiple-choice questions, which he or she must answer before moving on to the next topic. To access the quiz, please close out of the video, and select the appropriate section's quiz from the menu to the right. Upon completion, the volunteer receives a certificate of completion – a good way for the organization to let clients and supporters know its drivers are trained to transport clients safely.
