In order to drive a Davidson College High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV), you must complete HOV certification training here on campus. Drivers must also meet Motor Vehicle requirements to drive any campus vehicle.
Drivers pursuing HOV certification to drive vehicles with more than seven passengers must follow these procedures:
Email Jill Lowe to initiate the driver background check and begin the certification process
After eligibility to drive an HOV vehicle is confirmed, the driver will receive an email from Motor Pool containing a web link to the Safe Colleges Driver test
When a driver passes the Safe Colleges Driver test, Motor Pool will email the driver the upcoming dates for HOV vehicle training (see dates below)
After passing HOV driver training and signing the Driver Agreement Form, the driver is authorized to drive an HOV
Students must notify their faculty/staff sponsor of HOV driver authorization.
Driver certification is only required once during employment or enrollment.
Student Motor Vehicle Record checks will be conducted annually by Human Resources. Any violation of the Motor Pool Guidelines may result in a suspension or loss of privilege to drive a college vehicle.
HOV Driver Training Dates
All driver training sessions begin at 3 p.m. in the Baker Sports parking lot in the bay closest to Concord Road.
