Police Tactical Driver Training Recertification


The NIPSTA Police Tactical Driver Training Program is certified by the National Academy for Professional Driving (NAPD). The three-day course is 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 at the conclusion of the program.  It is valid for three years and may be renewed thereafter upon completion of a one-day re-certification course at NIPSTA. 


The NAPD 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, proactive program will reduce their accident rates and liabilities.


Program includes course materials.
