Thanks for your interest to become a 15-passenger van operator at Colby-Sawyer College. A 15-passenger van behaves much differently from a passenger car. Most people do not know that 15-passenger vans are more likely to roll over than any other type of vehicle. Understanding and using safe van-driving techniques will drastically reduce the risk that you or your passengers will suffer injury or even death. After taking this course, you will; understand the differences between driving a 15-passenger van and driving a car, describe effective driving preparation strategies, select safe and appropriate van driving techniques and identify procedures to safely conclude your trip.
