Vermont Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association

The purpose of the Vermont Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association (VDTSEA), which started over 50 years ago, is to provide an organization whereby the ideals of good citizenship, driver education, and traffic safety consciousness may be developed. It serves as a channel through which the members may act collectively. It strives to reduce injuries and fatalities of young motor vehicle operators, passengers, and other highway users. It participates in the promotion of safety activities in local schools, community projects, and state, regional and nationally directed programs.

The VDTSEA Board of Directors would like to welcome you all to this year’s ZOOM 2021 spring conference on May 20,  2021.  Driver education on the state, regional and national levels are experiencing new challenges and opportunities for growth and development during the Pandemic. Many workshops will provide you with information and strategies that you immediately can bring back and use in your classroom. The registration deadline is May 5, 2021
