DRE

Drug Recognition Expert (D.R.E.) Classroom Course

 

Course Description:

This course is a 72 hour classroom course.  It is required students pass with an 80% or better score on the final exam.  Once the classroom course is finished, the students will be required to go to a 32 hour field certification course.  This course shall be completed within 90 days of the completion of the classroom course.

 

Pre-requisites:

In order to qualify for this course, prospective students must have one year patrol experience and must have successfully passed the SFST and ARIDE courses.
 

Registration:

In order to register for this course, students are required to electronically submit a Training Request form as well as copies of their SFST and ARIDE certificates to DRE@chp.ca.gov.  An email with a name and POST ID number will not suffice to reserve a roster spot.  Students cannot be guaranteed a roster spot until all of the pre-requisites are met and the training request and certificates are submitted.  A pre-requisite class that is scheduled to be completed prior to the DRE course cannot be substituted for a certificate for the purposes of securing a roster spot.  Roster spots will be given on a first come, first served basis with emphasis placed on the student's geographic location in relation to the course.

 

Travel Reimbursement:

Allied Agencies: CHP has collaborated and partnered with POST to begin reimbursing California law enforcement agencies to offset the travel costs associated with students attending DRE courses.  Agencies seeking reimbursement through POST should have their DRE student submit a Training Reimbursement Request (TRR) form, POST 2-273 to the course manager on the first day of class.  POST will reimburse California law enforcement agencies for subsistence expenses including lodging and meals, as well as travel to and from training while personnel attend DRE school and DRE field certifications.  For more information on POST reimbursement rates, plans, and policies please visit https://www.post.ca.gov/pam-section-e.aspx.

CHP: CHP personnel will continue the current practice of seeking travel reimbursement through the California Automated Travel Expense Reimbursement System - CalATERS.  Students of upcoming DRE courses who plan to claim travel and who do not yet have access to CalATERS, should fill out a CHP 168 and submit it well in advance of the class.
