Volunteers must submit an application, participate in an interview & background screening and attend an orientation. Volunteer drivers must also pass a Motor Vehicle Record check and Distracted Driving exam, be comfortable driving in variable road conditions, have a standard license in Kansas or a Class E license in Missouri (we will reimburse after 6 months of service), and complete a ride-along with an experienced volunteer.
A minimum commitment of 12 hours of service in at least 6 months of service is required. Couples or friends can drive as teams but both will have to complete the application requirements and training.
