Large Vehicle Urban Driving Safety Program

The Large Vehicle Urban Driving Safety Program ensures, using a short training video and training requirements, that people who drive large vehicles in the city have been informed about the dangers and challenges of driving on the crowded streets of San Francisco near people walking and biking.



The training video is on YouTube and is free to anyone who would like to view it and use it with their drivers. The training video is required of all large vehicle drivers who work for the city. Contractors with the SFMTA is required to have any of their large vehicle drivers who drive in San Francisco either view the training video, or be trained in a manner that meets the training standards posted on this page.
