The all-day drivers training will be held Tuesday, September 26. This year’s training will help drivers meet their continuing education requirements. Courses include Defensive Driving, PASS (Passenger Assistance Safety and Sensitivity) and Advanced Wheelchair Securement (Roadeo Edition). This training and lunch are provided at no cost to attendees. Registration for the Driver’s Training needs to be completed at

The NATP 31st Annual Statewide Roadeo will be held on Wednesday, September 27. You may participate in one of the two vehicle divisions – body on chassis or minivan. There are four components of competition at the Roadeo; a written test, pre-trip inspection, wheelchair securement, and driving the obstacle course. Pre-trip inspection and wheelchair securement will be completed on a small bus vehicle, even if, you will drive the obstacle course in the minivan division.

A minimum of five drivers are required for a division to be held. If less than five are registered, a driver may choose to change divisions and participate or a full refund will be given. NATP reserves the right to cancel the event and full refunds would be given. Registrants may cancel, with a full refund given, if notice is received by the NATP office prior to the event.

Complete rules will be emailed before the competition. To be eligible for a full scholarship to the National CTAA Roadeo, drivers must spend at least 50% of their time driving for their transit system. Individuals may not receive scholarships for more than two consecutive years. The fee to compete is $50.

The Roadeo is an outside event - please bring a lawn chair. Snacks and drinks will be provided. An appreciation lunch will be held at 2:00 p.m. following the Roadeo. There is no cost for the lunch and everyone is invited to attend, even if you don’t compete in the Roadeo.

The 1st place winners from each division (minivan & body on chassis) will win $250; 2nd place winners will receive $150; and 3rd place will win $100. In addition, first and second place winners from the two divisions will earn a scholarship to compete at the 2024 National CTAA Roadeo in West Palm Beach, Florida, June 8-9.

The first and second place drivers’ managers will also earn a scholarship to attend the Roadeo and Expo! If you have a driver competing, we ask that you provide a volunteer to judge. This is not required but suggested.

In 2023, CTAA did not host a minivan division at the National Roadeo. Should this happen in the future, NATP will work with the minivan division winners to make alternative arrangements.
