UAB requires all employees, except UAB police, who operate a UAB vehicle as part of his or her regular duties to attend the Defensive Driving Course 4 (OHS-DDC4) course once every three years. New employees should attend the course within 90 days of employment and every three years after that.

The course will be offered in the B01 Training Room on the basement floor of the Community Health Services Building (CH19) on 19th Street. Limited public parking is available on the street. However, it is recommended to ride the UAB Blazer Express (the UAB bus).

Classes begin promptly at the scheduled time and those arriving late may be asked to reschedule.

A passing score of 70 percent is required and employees who score less that that must take the course again within 90 days.
