Army Launches Vehicle Safety Course

October 18, 2006

ARLINGTON, VA – Army vehicle drivers are now required to complete a new online course designed to improve driver safety. The Accident Avoidance Course is available through the Army Knowledge online Learning Management Services. All soldiers, civilian employees, and contractor employees who drive army-owned or leased vehicles must complete the training when they start working for the Army.

Refresher training must be completed every four years. The course meets the four-year refresher training requirements of Army Regulations 385-55 and 600-55.

Training is customized to each person using a risk assessment of driver behavior and habits. The driver’s safety course is expected to improve driving skills, promote awareness of aggressive driving, and teach defensive driving techniques and how to avoid distractions. Discussion of driving under the influence, substance abuse, child safety, and weather factors are also included in the training program.
