Annual Authorization Update Process

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

a. Update the Babson College Driver Authorization Update Application and send to Risk Management.  If no changes, driver may write the words NO CHANGES across the form in large letters and send to Risk Management.

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 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.
