Vincennes University employees and students may drive Vincennes University vehicles once approved by the University Police Department. Prior to being able to reserve, check-out, and/or operate a vehicle owned by the University, the employee or student must read, understand, and agree to the Vincennes University Vehicle Usage Procedures and submit a completed Approved Driver Form to the University Police Department. The instructions for completing and submitting the form are on the Approved Driver Form.

Once an employee or student is approved to drive, a vehicle may be requested by following the vehicle reservation process.

All Approved Driver Forms for employees expire every 2 years, from date of approval. Employees will need to submit a NEW Approved Driver Form bi-annually. Faillure to due this will result in the employee being removed from the reservation system.

All Approved Driver Forms for students will expire at the end of every semester. Students will need to submit a NEW Approved Driver Form once the next semester begins, if the need still exists. This will generally need and employee's or supervisor's sign-off.
