As of 08/04/2014 the mandatory Student Driver Safety Course is offered online through United Educators.

* United Educators is a resource to offer driver safety awareness and training; the course is not meant to completely fulfill each institution's needs, but rather it enhances driver awareness. The Ithaca College Driving College Vehicles Policy and the Student Driver Handbook always supersede, so it is important to be familiar with the policies and procedures contained within.

As an example; below are a few instances where the online training differs:

  • Students are restricted to mini-vans that do not exceed a 7 person occupancy limit.
  • College vehicles do not currently have all emergency equipment referenced in the training.
  • Student drivers cannot exceed three hours of driving before switching to another driver.
