The NIPSTA Law Enforcement Driver Training Program is certified by the National Academy for Professional Driving (NAPD).
The 2-day and 3-day courses are designed to enhance the driving skills and knowledge of police officers. Training includes classroom instruction and hands-on driving exercises. Program success is measured on a pass/fail basis and requires student proficiency on a written exam and in many driving simulations.
A certificate of Achievement is awarded and the conclusion of the program. It is valid for three years and may be renewed thereafter upon completion of the one-day recertification course at NIPSTA.
The SUV curriculum is a complete driver improvement program. Students develop skills and knowledge that will enhance their on-the-job performance. Caution and efficiency are reinforced each day of training. Driving activities are specifically designed to be intense, but in a safe environment at controlled speeds.
Departments that participate in this comprehensive program will reduce their accident rates and liabilities.
