Mandatory Trailer Towing Training

For those customers who use vehicles in our daily rental fleet for towing purposes, we have implemented an on-line, mandatory trailer towing training program. Any driver who will be towing a trailer with a vehicle rented from our daily rental fleet will need to complete this training.

This training will be required for any reservation after July 31, 2013 when the vehicle will be used for towing.

This training does not apply to departments that will be towing a trailer with a vehicle that is permanently assigned to that department. If you have any questions, please call (319) 335-5088.
