The schedule for the University Defensive Driving Classes (DDC) for the Spring semester have been posted on the

University Safety Website -
This class is one of the requirements for a permit to drive University  vehicles.  For the convenience of faculty, students, and staff, the office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) provides training monthly during regular work hours and at least one Saturday each semester. Course registrants must attend the entire (6 hour) National Safety Council course in order to receive a certificate of completion and/or driving permit.  Classes typically include 35-45 persons and are open to the public.

Classes often fill early, please register at least two weeks in advance to ensure a reservation.  University employees and department should use the

On-line registration form
and provide an account number.  Departments will be billed for registered individuals who fail to attend and neglect to cancel and reschedule with EH&S prior to the course.

Those taking the class for personal reasons should use the online form but they must provide payment before the class in order to reserve their registration. Additional details on driving permits, policy and maps to the classroom are provided via the above link.

Departments should print and post the noted DDC web page for information.

Thank you.
