Driving for DU

Driving Procedures, MVR Check and Driver Safety Training

All faculty, staff, students and other persons who drive vehicles on behalf of the University must have their motor vehicle record (MVR) checked and complete the online driver safety training course. Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for driving privileges to be granted.

Follow the three steps below to drive for the University. You must authorize the MVR check and complete the online driver safety course within 2 weeks of our initial contact, or we will clear you from our queue.

  • Step 1

    Review the DU Driving Procedures document

  • Step 2

    Driving Record Check

    Pursuant to the DU Driving Procedures, all faculty, staff, students and other persons who drive vehicles for the University must have a satisfactory motor vehicle record (MVR). To complete an MVR check, follow these two steps:

    1.  Request an MVR check and provide the following information:
      1. Your name
      2. Your preferred email address
      3. Your division and department
    2. Second, authorize your MVR check by using the link in the email invitation sent to you from HireRight; this email will likely go to your junk/spam folder.

    Criteria used to determine whether an MVR is acceptable to allow for DU driving privileges are found in the DU Driving Procedures.

  • Step 3

    Driver Safety Training

    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 EduRisk. 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.

Other 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 comprehension.
