After completing the College Driver Safety Program, you must schedule a time to come to the Center for Social Impact to review our DCSI Driver Rules​​​​​​​ Please email DCSI Cars to schedule this final, 15 minute step.

Reservations

With the support of Dartmouth College and in response to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we are suspending all vehicle reservations through May 1, 2020.  Though vehicle reservations will not be accepted during this time, we will be continuing to monitor the situation and adjust this timeframe as needed.  For questions regarding program activities during please contact Cristina Carpentier.
