Appendix E, Ordering Safe Driver Testing and Training Materials

This section describes how to order instructional materials associated with the Safe Driver Program, including materi­als for testing, classroom instruction, and the Defensive Driver Course.


Instructional materials associated with the Safe Driver Pro­gram are available through the Material Distribution Center (MDC). The Postal Employee Development Center (PEDC) is responsible for ordering materials as needed, but other functions, such as Safety, can also order materials.

For any course with a qualifying exam, only certified District examiners are authorized to order selection and testing materials.
