The safety of SOU students, faculty and staff is of primary concern to the Facilities Management & Planning Department. The State of Oregon, Oregon University System and Southern Oregon University require that it also be the primary concern of all University drivers and passengers. We adhere to State laws, and State and University administrative rules which govern vehicle operation.
Clearance is required for all drivers of state-owned or rented vehicles, or when driving your personal vehicle on University approved business. Drivers with an Oregon driver license must complete and submit the
DRIVER CLEARANCE REQUEST FORM (Please allow 3-5 business days for request completion)
OUT-OF-STATE CLEARANCE PROCEDURES
Drivers with a non-Oregon driver's license are responsible for obtaining their own court-certified record.
The driving record must be a state-certified document; no exceptions will be allowed.
A DRIVER CLEARANCE REQUEST FORM must be submitted with your driving record for proper processing. Please enter "Out Of State" in the Index Code Field on the form.
The driving record must be submitted directly to FMP via mail or fax:
Mail: 351 Walker Ave., Ashland, OR 97520
Fax: (541) 552-6235
Please contact the FMP office if you have questions regarding Driver Clearance at 552-6231
A safety kit is required if carrying passengers in remote areas. All vans are equipped with a safety kit.
