Background, Reference, and Verification Screens Policy
I. Authorized Driver Approval Procedures
Drivers of University Vehicles must be over eighteen years of age and authorized by the Campus Safety Office. To receive approval, the driver will be required to complete a DMV/Driving Record Check by Human Resources in accordance with the Background, Reference, and Verification Screens Policy to ensure that the driver has a valid and active driver’s license for the class of vehicle they will be operating.
The DMV/Driving Record Check will be conducted annually by Human Resources for all approved drivers whose job description requires the regular use of a University Vehicle. Other users whose positions do not require the regular use of a University vehicle will participate in an DMV/Driving Record Check at the time of the initial request to use the vehicle. A successful DMV/Driving Record Check is valid for one calendar year. Therefore, all operators of a University Vehicle will be required to participate in DMV/Driving Record Check once a calendar year.
