Completing the GSA Defensive Driving course may allow volunteers to drive refuge vehicles for refuge associated projects. This is a 4 to 6 hour online course. Instructions below:

 

National Safety Council's Online Defensive Driving Course is a four-hour course designed to provide convenient training on a personal computer. Using state-of-the-art animation and graphics, the online defensive driving course offers an engaging, interactive learning environment for Fleet customers to analyze real driving situations, spot driving hazards, and identify the correct defenses. GSA's Office of Motor Vehicle Management offers this training free of charge to GSA Fleet customers. Upon completion, students receive a Water Marked certificate from the National Safety Council that, in many states, may be used to lower automobile insurance rates. More than 65 million drivers have learned to protect themselves on the road by taking part in National Safety Council programs.  Certification expires within three years, so those who took this course in 2013 will need to take it again to maintain certification.

It's Fast, Easy, and Free!
