Online Tow Truck Driver Certification Program Approved by the Motor Carrier Division of the Utah Dep

Press Release

January 23, 2013

Since its launch in January 2011, approximately 400 Utah tow truck drivers have received their tow truck driver certification through the Utah Safety Council’s online program. This is the first tow truck driver certification program that is entirely online.

This course has been approved by the Motor Carrier Division of the Utah Department of Transportation and meets the requirements to obtain designation as a Certified Tow Truck Driver in the state of Utah. This certification covers topics specific to Utah’s laws and driving conditions.

The Utah Safety Council Tow Truck Driver Certification Course is convenient, quick, comprehensive, interactive, lo­cal, and affordable. It is vastly superior to any other tow truck driver certification program anywhere outside of Utah and is the best available solution to certify Utah tow truck drivers.

While the service offered by national companies certainly allow Utah towing and recovery companies to meet the legal requirement of having all their drivers certified to operate tow trucks, the out of state solutions are time consuming, more costly, and generic in content. The Utah Safety Council’s program is a more convenient course offered en­tirely online. The entire process, from registration to completion, takes approximately one hour. Once the driver completes the course, the certification card is received in the mail within 1 to 3 days or alternatively it can be picked up at the Utah Safety Council headquarters in Salt Lake City.

The Utah Safety Council goes beyond just offering a certification program. The Utah Safety Council partners with its customers to provide safety products and services and has several resources to help tow truck companies continue to train and drive safely after their certification is complete. This includes portions of the Safety Media Library and the Members Only Website resources that are specific to the towing industry.

The Utah Safety Council is excited to be able to provide this interactive online program for the tow truck drivers in Utah. To access this certification program, visit: www.utahsafetycouncil.org.
