University Vehicles

To operate a university vehicle, faculty, staff, or student drivers must 

  • possess a valid driver's license; 

  • have two years of driving experience; 

  • successfully complete the Rutgers Defensive Driving Course*; and 

  • pass an eye examination.  

The Department of Emergency Services offers both the defensive driving course and the eye examination.  

While operating a privately owned vehicle on university business, employees must carry 

  • a valid driver's license; 

  • a vehicle registration card; and 

  • an insurance identification card. 

*May be waived for occasional drivers who don't transport passengers. 

Automobile Insurance Cards 

When vehicles are purchased/leased for the university or donated to it, an Automobile Insurance Card must immediately be obtained from the Department of Risk Management & Insurance. Please also notify us of university vehicles that are sold, transferred, or retired from service, so we can remove them from the insurance schedules.
