Defensive Driver Training

The CSU Vehicle Use Policy requires State employees (including student employees) to complete Defensive Driver Training every 4-years in order to drive a State, rental, or privately-owned vehicle, including electric carts, on State business.

There are now two (2) options available to meet the California State University DDT requirement.

Option 1:  Attend one of the  monthly scheduled classroom sessions.  This course is great for those who do not have access to the University’s DTS.  This course takes approximately 1-hour and 45-minutes.

Option 2:  Complete the three (3) web based training modules, print and complete the Defensive Driver Training Employee Information and Authorization for Release of Driver Records form, and mail to EHS.  Due to the sensitive nature of some information required for recordkeeping, it is not possible to submit the paperwork via the DTS. This option will take approximately 1-hour and 30-minutes.  NOTE: Failure to complete the recordkeeping step will leave the DDT incomplete and could affect Travel reimbursement and job status.

To complete Option 2, you must be assigned to the DDT Learning Track.  Please contact Kathy Kinch at kkinch@csuchico.edu to request enrollment.
