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.

The Development and Training System (DTS) is currently offline as we prepare to transition all on-line training services into the new CSU Learn.  CSU Learn will replace the existing DTS on January 29, 2019. 

During this transition, there are two (2) options available to employees and students to complete their defensive driver training.  Please e-mail Kathy Kinch at kkinch@csuchico.edu to receive a link, with attachments, for the DGS On-Line Defensive Driver Training, or

The Department of Environmental Health and Safety will be offering instructional led Defensive Driver Training sessions to be held in Meriam Library Studio A.  These sessions will be held on:
