There are 3 steps to the driver authorization process:

  1. Your agreement to College’s terms, condition, rules and regulations for driving a College owned or rented vehicle and the College’s satisfactory review of your driving history
  2. Your successful completion of an online driver safety course
  3. Your successful completion of a vehicle orientation with Public Safety

All Van Orientations will be held at Public Safety on Tuesday's between 8:00a.m. - 9:30a.m. and Wednesday's between 7:00p.m.- 8:30p.m. (Please choose one or the other).


You will complete the form below (front and back) in its entirety, and take to Public Safety along with a copy of your driver’s license.  If you have held a driver’s license from more than one state in the past 3 years, you must include information and a copy of all.

  • The College will pull and review your driving record to be sure it meet’s the insurance company’s and the College’s criteria for a safe driver.
  • When you have successfully met the safe driver criteria, you will be provided access to the on-line driver safety course.  This course will be accessible from any computer 24/7 for the next 30 days. 
  • Upon successful completion of the safety driving course, you and the College will receive notification that you have successfully completed the course.  A copy of your completion certificate will be added to your credentialing file and you will be notified by the College that you have completed the second step in the process.
  • At that point you will be authorized pending completion of a vehicle orientation.
