At least one ride along with a DPS Highway Patrol Officer is highly recommended. The ride along application (which must be completed by the applicant and approved by a DPS Supervisor prior to the applicant being scheduled by DPS for a ride along) can be downloaded by following the link below. The completed ride along application must be returned to the nearest Highway Patrol field office in relation to where you would like to do your ride along. Please DO NOT return the ride along application to the DPS Headquarters in Phoenix as Headquarters is not a field office.
