Authorized Driver Program

All ASU employees who drive university owned, leased or rented vehicles, including electric carts, for official business must complete the Authorized Driver Program.

This process includes:

  • Authorized Driver training
  • Complete all steps in the Authorized Driver Program guide,  accessed in MyASU in the Employee tab
  • Driver Authorization for rechecks, which includes providing proof of a valid U.S. Driver’s License of the appropriate class.
  • Motor Vehicle Record check

When an employee's driver’s license expires, or their driver’s license has more than six points, a re-verification process is required.

Employees with positions identifying them as drivers for official business are notified by email with instructions to complete the Authorized Driver Program.

Authorized Driver training options

The Authorized Driver Training covers both campus mall and public road driving safety awareness. This course replaces the previous Defensive Driving and Driving on the Mall courses.

Two options of the Authorized Driver training course are available to meet State of Arizona and ASU requirements:

Complete the instructor-led course offered by EHS. To look up scheduled EHS classes and to register, go to the EHS training webpage, select the maroon box and follow the instructions for registration.
Complete the web-based course on ASU Career EDGE.

These regulations ensure the safety of our employees and volunteers and comply with the Arizona Administrative Code and ASU Policy EHS 119: Motor Fleet Safety.
