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 or 206-221-6838.
