DOT Driver Basic Program
This basic driver program (handling, loading, placarding only) is for companies whose drivers do not need to go through a complete shipment inspection. Someone else has already inspected the cargo to ensure it’s in the right packaging and marking, labeling and documentation is correct. The training is based on the current edition of 49 CFR. The program includes the US DOT required General Awareness, Safety and Security Awareness training.
The program covers both initial and recertification training. If you are currently trained and know what you’re doing you will be able to complete the program in a shorter time period.
