PLU Authorized Driver

In order to operate a PLU-owned vehicle, leased or rented vehicle, or to use your personal vehicle on PLU business, you must:

  • Have a valid state driver’s license for a minimum of two years.
  • Have a completed motor vehicle record check.
  • Complete the assigned Vector Solutions on-line driving courses.
  • Review the PLU Vehicle Safety Policy.

Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that any employee who regularly drives on PLU business is on PLU’s authorized driver list.

For employees, the two driving modules have been added to your library of training modules. Be sure to take both modules (Van Safety and Defensive Driving). Employees can go to to log into the system. Your username is your PLU ID number.

Students who operate a PLU owned vehicle or a vehicle rented for a club, class or team must first complete a motor vehicle record check (MVR). Your supervisor, advisor, faculty member or coach will contact Student Employment to request the MVR. Once the MVR is completed you will be assigned the online driver’s training modules. After completing the two online modules you should print out or show a digital copy of the completion certificates to your supervisor, adviser, faculty member or coach.

Test Info

The test consists of short videos followed by 10 multiple choice questions. A score of 90% is required for passing. Once all tests are successfully completed you are certified to drive a PLU fleet van, rented vehicle or golf cart.

You will not be issued a driver’s certification card. Once you complete a test the system will automatically generate a certificate of completion. Please keep an electronic or hard copy of this certificate for your records. You will not be required to show this certificate when picking up a vehicle at Campus Safety. The PLU employee who rents the vehicle is responsible to ensure that all drivers have a valid PLU driver’s certification.

The certification is valid for four years. Re-testing is required to be re-certified and it is the responsibility of the driver to maintain a valid certification.
