In order to drive a university vehicle, a student must have completed the W&M Van Certification Course. Eligibility to drive a W&M vehicle is contingent upon completion. Individuals who have had a moving violation within the past year are not eligible for the course or approval. Completion of this course makes you an eligible driver as a student for the duration of your W&M tenure.
You must register in person with completed paperwork at the Office of Student Leadership Development - Campus Center 203. Individuals will not be permitted to sign up without all completed paperwork. Required paperwork includes the following:
- Driving Record from your Home State: In order to take the van safety course, you must provide a copy of your COMPLETE driving record from your home state. Consult with your DMV for a transcript. In Virginia (and where available) the printed unofficial driving record is accepted. (Some states do not provide a printable version and it must be requested and paid for through your DMV)
- Police Van Training Form
- Student Driver Authorization
Each class is limited in size so plan ahead and schedule your space early. If you have any questions, call the Office of Student Leadersip Development 221-3300. Student Leadership Development reserves the right to cancel a class with fewer than 6 participants signed up.
