All current drivers of University vehicles must renew their driver’s application to be able to drive during the school year. Per our insurance carrier, all previous registrations become void July 1 of that year.
Attached you will find a current University Vehicle Driver Application. Please read and complete the new form and return it to the Office of Public Safety at your earliest convenience. To apply for approval, a potential driver must complete an Approved Driver Application with a copy of their driver’s license.
To gain approval, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
Must have a current driver’s license.
May not have been convicted of DUI, DWI or a similar offense in a three-year period prior to the application date.
May not have been involved in an accident for a two-year period prior to the application date.
May not have more than one moving violation conviction in a one-year period prior to the application date.
Must be at least 18 years of age to drive a university car, pickup truck or cargo van.
Must be at least 21 years of age to drive a 15 passenger van.
Must possess a valid CDL license with a passenger endorsement to drive a 23-passenger bus.
Must have passed or received a waiver for a driving demonstration with the Manager of Safety and Security.
Please be aware and make your students or staff aware that falsifying the application or driving a university vehicle without approval could result in the driver being personally liable for any accident, injury or other damage. Remember: While students may drive vehicles, a faculty or staff member must ride in the vehicle.
If you need more applications for your department, please stop by the Public Safety office prior to using a University vehicle. In order to give the insurance company adequate time to properly register any drivers, the insurance carrier demands a full TWO WEEKS notice before a vehicle can be driven. Please fill out the registration forms as soon as possible.
