All employees who are driving for WOU in their capacity as an employee must be cleared by Campus Public Safety prior to driving both state and personal vehicles. In order to be cleared to drive, employees must fill out the vehicle authorization form. Employees driving their personal vehicles must also fill out the Private Automobile Certificate of Insurance form (contact Public Safety). A new form must be filled out if you change insurance companies while driving for WOU business.
In addition to the vehicle authorization form, employees driving 12 passenger vans must take an additional test. Managed by Oregon State University, the OSU Motor Pool Van Safety Test covers how to safely drive these vans and keep its occupants safe as well. Upon successful completion of the Van Safety test, a copy of the certification must be provided to Public Safety.
In addition to the vehicle authorization form, employees driving a gator utility cart for their work must fill out the Golf Cart/Utility Vehicle form.
