Faculty and Staff Driving Approval Process

All Ithaca College faculty and staff who need to drive a College vehicle for College business or a College activity must authorize the College to check their MVR by completing a Driver Information Form to become an approved driver prior to operating a College Vehicle.

Staff and faculty who are licensed in New York State (NYS) and who submitted a Driver Information Form after August 2014 do not need to submit a subsequent Form, since an individual’s MVR is now continuously monitored by an MVR vendor and Risk Management will be notified about all motor vehicle activity, including infractions and accidents.

Staff and faculty licensed outside of NYS must resubmit a Driver Information Form every two academic years.  

When infractions or accidents are evidenced on an MVR, they are reviewed against the Driving College Vehicles Policy to determine if an individual meets the criteria to be an Ithaca College acceptable driver.    The individual, their respective supervisor, and Human Resources, when necessary, will be notified only if an MVR contains unacceptable risk and the individual is not approved to drive.
