Driver Safety Training & Resources

Driver Safety & Awareness Training

Before driving a UW-owned vehicle, faculty, staff and students are required to take either our web-based or classroom version of the Driver Safety & Awareness training course as well as review and acknowledge applicable policies. The course must be refreshed every 2 years to stay current and qualified to drive UW-owned vehicles.

The new Driver Safety & Awareness course allows users to take the course, view completion data, and print certificates by using their UW NetID and associated password. The web-based lookup tool for supervisors is temporarily unavailable.

If you have any questions or concerns about this update or your training status, please contact the Fleet Safety Office at tssafety@uw.edu or 206-221-6838.
