Driver Wellness

Overview

Accidents involving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) can be catastrophic - goods are spilled and destroyed, vehicles and property are damaged, people are injured, and in the worst cases, they die. One key to preventing CMV accidents is making sure that drivers are in the best physical condition possible. Having healthy drivers on the road is so important that the government requires all new CMV drivers to learn about driver wellness.

In this course, you will learn about six key driver wellness topics. These include diet, exercise, stress reduction, sleep, the use of alcohol and other controlled substances, and smoking. You will discover relevant health hazards associated with each, and we will provide some tips for healthier living (and safer driving).

Note: This course meets the entry-level driver training requirements for Driver Wellness that are outlined in 49 CFR 380.503(c) - Entry-level Driving Requirements, Driver Wellness.
