Using DCSI Cars

Driver Approval Process

To become a Center for Social Impact approved driver, you must first compete the college Driver Safety program, which includes:

  • Application
  • Copy of your driver's license
  • Online Driver Safety Program

If you are interested in becoming certified to drive an E-350 van, you must take an additional online driver safety course which can be scheduled through the Transportation Office once you have completed the College Driver Safety Program.

After completing the College Driver Safety Program, you must schedule a time to come to the Center for Social Impact to complete some additional training and paperwork in order to drive for one of our programs. Please email DCSI Cars to schedule this final, 15 minute step.

This entire process must occur even if your program intends to use a personal vehicle.
