My name is Steve Young and I am a retired California Highway Patrol Officer. I will also be your instructor in one of the online traffic courses with B Line Traffic Schools. No matter what course you sign up for, my goals are the same: Present you with the information that you need in a way that will not put you to sleep and then get you back to your life.  Throughout some of the courses I have included interesting situations, people and other random things I have come across in my 25+ years with the CHP to break things up a bit. Ok ok, enough about me. Close this window and start your course with B Line Traffic Schools today.

CHP – California Highway Patrol website

05 Jun Blog | Comments

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) website is full of lots of great information. The information that is available is extensive and very helpful. There are six tabs with all sorts of different information. The tabs include:

Home Tab:

This tab includes the mission statement which is: “The mission of the California Highway Patrol is to provide the highest level of safety, service, and security to the people of California.” It also has five goals within that overall mission: Prevent Loss of Life, Injuries and Property Damage, Maximize Service to the Public and Assistance to Allied Agencies, Manage Traffic and Emergency Incidents, Protect Public and State Assets and to Improve Department Efficiency.

The tab also includes a Public Affairs/Customer Service area. This area is a place to ask questions and/or leave feedback. Feedback is encouraged because that is how they know they are doing things well or find out about areas that could use some improvement.

Community Tab:

This tab includes all the ways the CHP reaches out to its very diverse cultures. There is an Asian Pacific Islander Outreach Program, the El Protector Program, some great Youth Programs, including but not limited to, Meet CHIPPER, Making the Right Turn, Start Smart!, etc…, and also some programs geared towards the Senior age group.

Jobs & Exams Tab:

Here you can go explore job opportunities. There are notifications for when the CHP Exams will take place and where. There is also information about how you can become a CHP Officer, a Public Safety Dispatcher, an Explorer and how to become a Commercial Vehicle Specialist.

New & Traffic Tab:

This tab covers CHP News and current Traffic Incidents. There are press releases, regulatory actions that have been newly adopted, regulatory actions that have been proposed, and community assistance. This is a great area for keeping up-to-date on news and the latest traffic incidents so you know where you might want to avoid.

Division & Offices

This area breaks down not only where CHP offices are, but also how the state of California is broken up by division. You can find out who is in each position and what their position does. There is also a description of each of the division and what type of terrain and industry that division has.

Public Forms

This tab is great because it has lots of great information for the public. The forms in this tab can be printed off and filled in beforehand, saving you time. There are forms for: traffic accidents, motorcycle and bicycle requirements, school buses, how to transport hazardous materials, how to report a crime and several other useful forms.

The California Highway Patrol website is very well organized and full of a lot of very helpful information. The tabs are easy to navigate and should you be new to the area or a long time resident there is bound to be information that will be helpful. Also, on the front page are great links to other websites that you may find helpful. The Fast Find Information and the Information and Resources sections will probably be the most helpful to you.
