Driver’s Application

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.
