Driver's Safety

Becoming a certified student driver

Successful completion of the Driver's Safety Program is a REQUIREMENT of any student who drives a vehicle for University-related purposes. This is also true for vehicles obtained from the University Service Center, rental vehicles for University purposes, driving for University departments, etc.

Once a student fulfills the requirements, he/she is placed on a list of qualified drivers. This is a one-time requirement, students do not have to repeat the process annually.

DETAILS ABOUT THE PROCESS

Faculty or Staff personnel that wish to have a student certified to drive a University owned vehicle should arrange with the students to attend a training session. Driver's Certification is only available to students 21 years of age or older due to the University's insurance requirements.

The Driver's Safety Program will be held every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. The training session will be held in the Office of Public Safety, located in the lower level of 101 E. Seminary St. There will be a maximum of 8 people in a training session.  Students should check in at the Communication Center window of the Public Safety Office.

Anyone taking the training will simply need to bring a pen or pencil and their valid driver's license.  Major violations will prohibit a person from becoming certified to drive University owned vehicles.  

The training will take approximately 2 hours.  Please call Public Safety at 765-658-5555 or x.5555, or email at police@depauw.edu if you have any questions.
