Driver Certification

Certification is required prior to any travel for university business purposes. If you are planning on driving your personal vehicle or renting a vehicle for university business, you will need to complete the Personal Vehicle Certification process at least five business days prior to your trip. If you are planning on driving a university vehicle, you will need to complete the University Vehicle Certification process at least five business days prior to your trip. This additional time is needed for the driving record background check process to complete.

Note: If your driver's license is issued from a state other than Oregon, additional paperwork may be required in order to request the driving record background check. For example, Washington drivers need to sign a release form in order to have their driving record checked. Please contact Plant Services for this form by emailing your request to: plantservices@georgefox.edu.

Please see the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page for information on how to reserve a vehicle.
