Description:   DRE School  2021

The Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) Program has proven successful in identifying the drug impaired driver.  DREs are frequently called upon to differentiate between drug influence, medical issues and/or mental disorders.  The certified DRE is an extremely valuable tool for combating the adverse impact of drug and alcohol impaired driving in Idaho.

The Statewide Impaired Driving Coordinator program will cover most of the costs of attending the DRE Training and Field Certification phase.  The SIDC Program will pay for per diem and lodging while at the two week DRE School in Meridian.  The SIDC program will also cover per diem, lodging and rental vehicles for Field Certs in Reno. 

To be considered for DRE training, applicants must meet the following required criteria:

    • Must have a minimum of two years of service (excluding Reserve time) and/or recommendation from a DRE Instructor.
    • Must be off probation with your agency.
    • Must be a certified SFST practitioner, successfully completed ARIDE (Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement) training and possess current Intoxilyzer, Draeger, Lifeloc FC20 or Alco-Sensor III certified.
