How to Become a Certified Driver

How to obtain Certification to Drive for Colorado College:

 

  1. Bring a current and valid driver’s license to the front office of Facilities Services located at 1125 Glen Avenue. (The old Van Briggle Building) between the hours of 8:00-4:30, Monday through Friday.
  2. Sign the release form authorizing Colorado College to conduct a check of your Motor Vehicle Report, also known as a MVR. (this process may take 3-10 business days, so plan accordingly)
  3. If you are a student or will be driving for the athletic department, you will need to take two on-line driving courses. One will cover driving and the other will cover Colorado College policy.  These tests will be e-mailed to you from AlertDriving.com

 

*If you have a driver’s license issued from Alaska, California, Pennsylvania or New Hampshire, you will need to order the Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) yourself as these states only allow the driver to obtain this information.  There is usually a fee associated with this which is not reimbursable.  You will be provided information on how to obtain your MVR from these above listed states.

 

Driver certification needs to be completed on an annual basis.
