Driver Responsibilities

Driving FOR DU - Driving procedures, mvr CHECK, and  SAFETY TRAINING

All faculty, staff, students, and other persons who drive vehicles for the University must have their motor vehicle driving record (MVR) checked and must complete the online Driver Safety Training course (formerly known as Defensive Driving).  Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for driving privileges to be granted. Follow the two steps below to drive for the University. You must respond to the background check and complete the driver safety course within 2 weeks of our initial contact or we will clear you from our queue. 

1. Review the DU Driving procedures document.

2.  DRIVING RECORD CHECK.  Pursuant to the DU Driving Policy, all faculty, staff, students, and other persons who drive vehicles for the University must have a satisfactory motor vehicle driving record (MVR).  To request an MVR check, click here and provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your preferred email address
  • Your division and department

After requesting the MVR check, be on the lookout for an e-mail from HireRight requesting information that you need to provide in order to complete the check.  Criteria used to determine whether an MVR is acceptable to allow for DU driving privileges are found in the DU Driving Policy.

3.  DRIVER SAFETY TRAINING (formerly known as Defensive Driving).  All faculty, staff, students, and other persons who drive vehicles for the University must pass the online Driver Safety Training course presented by United Educators Insurance through their EduRisk portal.  The online course takes 45-60 minutes to complete.  Upon completion, you will be presented with an online certificate, which you should print and retain as confirmation of successful completion of the course.

safety Training Programs

Check DU's Environmental Health & Safety website for training for University employees covering a number of general safety topics.  Because of the hazards associated with their job duties many DU employees are required by law to attend safety training. Some training is offered online and usually requires a short quiz to be taken to verify content comprehension.
