NICC’s CDL and Safe Driver Training Program

The Nebraska Indian Community College (NICC) is a minority serving land grant institution with four campuses: The college’s Macy Campus is on the Omaha Reservation; the Santee Campus is on the Santee Reservation while the unban campus is in South Sioux City (all situated in USDOT Region 7). NICC also operates a fourth campus in conjunction with the Pawnee Nation in Oklahoma. Transportation safety is a major concern on Native American reservations. NICC will create a safe driving institute, offering free driver education and training on safe operation of personal and commercial vehicles. The project will create safer travel conditions on reservations and alleviate the acute nationwide commercial motor vehicle driver shortage.
