Additional Training

12- to 15-Passenger Van Training

Studies conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveal that loaded 15-passenger vans have significantly higher risk of rollover than passenger cars and light trucks. Driving large vans requires skill and experience from the operator, with little or no margin of error.

UW-Eau Claire, UW-River Falls and UW-Stout jointly would like to announce a new opportunity developed in coordination with Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC). 12- to 15-passenger van training courses, offered three times throughout the year, will be available to qualifying university employees.  Trainings will consist of classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction from trained CVTC personnel. Registration information for the next available session can be found here: 12 to 15 Passenger Van Training (10.26.2022). (Please note: You must cancel 5 days prior to the training date, to not be charged)

Costs associated with completing this course are the responsibility of the participant (and/or participant's department). Approximate costs total $85/participant, not including travel expenses.
