Motor Pool is required to validate all driver's license numbers before vehicles are rented. Validation is required annually each July 1. If your license has not been validated this fiscal year, please allow extra time for that process to be completed when picking up your vehicle. People with out-of-state licenses should provide their license a week before their trip to ensure information can be verified prior to travel.
University vehicles will not be assigned to a student. A student may drive only if a University faculty or staff member accepts responsibility for the student driver. It is preferred the faculty or staff be present in the vehicle. See University Policies and Procedures 9.63 Motor Vehicle Usage.
