Annual Authorization Update Process

The process to remain as an authorized driver for Babson College has become even more automated, through the use of Adobe Sign Software.

1.  On an annual basis, driver will be required to do the following in order to maintain authorization status:

a. Driver will receive an email requesting that they complete and electronically sign the Driver's Updated Application and the Agreement to Terms and Conditions.  

Note: You are not allowed to drive a College-owned vehicle if you do not hold a valid US driver’s license.  Therefore, any changes that occur in your license status (revocation, suspension, etc.) must be reported to Risk Management and Public Safety as soon as it happens, rather than waiting for the annual review.  Failure to report could result in disciplinary action.

b. Driver will also be required to acknowledge that she or he has read and accepts the Driver Agreement to Terms, Conditions, Rules and Regulations.

c. Failure to electronically sign and return these documents to Risk Management on a timely basis may result in loss of authorization to drive on behalf of the College. 

d. In order to be reinstated, the driver must repeat the authorization process in its entirety.

2.  As long as the driver maintains a valid US driver’s license and remain accident and moving violation-free, there will be nothing additional to do.
