Planning to Drive a University Vehicle?

As part of our ongoing risk management program, Wilkes University is required to re-verify the qualifications of existing drivers.

Beginning with the fall 2022 semester, all individuals who plan to drive a university vehicle (students, faculty or staff) must have an approved Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) check on file with the University Police Department. Approved MVR checks are valid for 12 months unless further violation(s) occur that may impact driver eligibility status. 

If you will be driving a university-owned vehicle and do not currently have an approved MVR check, please submit a Request for Driver Authorization Form prior to your expected travel dates. This program will help to maximize the safe operation of University-owned or leased vehicles, improve the safety of drivers, passengers and the public, and minimize losses, damages and claims against the University.

The form can be found here as Attachment A of the University Vehicle Use Policy. Completed forms can be emailed to or dropped off at the University Police Communications Center.
