Submit this record via a scanned copy uploaded/attached to this form. Your request will not be processed without it this information.

- I understand that for the purposes of University of Oregon driver certification, a year is defined as the period beginning on October 1 and ending on September 30, and driver certification is valid for up to one year. After the relevant certification period ends, the driver must complete a new driver certification form to be re certified.
- I understand that in order to rent a vehicle from the state motor pool, I am required to complete this driver certification form.
- I understand that in order to drive a van (owned, rented, or borrowed) for University sanctioned travel, I must complete the online van safety training course.
- I understand that drivers on University-business travel are expected to observe all applicable speed limits and to operate their vehicles in accordance with all applicable laws and state regulations.
- I understand that at any time during my driver certification period, if I fail to meet the minimum driving record requirements, including a situation in which my driver’s license expires prior to renewing it, I will notify my supervisor and the Department of Parking and Transportation immediately. I understand that failure to report this may result in permanent revocation of my certified driver status.

This means that the University will not pay the costs of any repairs to my vehicle; nor will it necessarily provide bodily injury coverage for me if I am in my own vehicle. When I am using my own vehicle on official University business, I understand that my auto insurance will apply primary coverage. In an accident, if the liability loss exceeds my own policy limits, the University’s coverage will apply to the excess over my policy limits.

Nor will it cover if my act or omission amounts to malfeasance in office or willful or wanton neglect of duty.

- I warrant that the above information is true and accurate and I understand that I am required to notify the University of Oregon of any changes to my driving record and/or insurance coverage that occurred after submitting this Certification.
