The following restrictions apply to any student, under any circumstance, driving college vehicles (e.g. student workers, field trips, conferences, pickups/deliveries, traveling to class work sites, etc.):

  1. Students may drive college vehicles when traveling with an employee of the ATCC. This means the employee is driving a second college vehicle to the same destination at the same time. Exception: When driving college vehicles to/from job sites or deliveries/pickups in Alexandria.
  2. Any student driving college vehicles must have a valid driver's license.
  3. Before any student will be allowed to drive a college vehicle, the student must complete a "Universal Vehicle Use" form. ATCC will obtain a copy of their motor vehicle report from the appropriate state agency.

  4. Students will be deemed eligible or ineligible to drive college vehicles based on  Minnesota State Guideline  Driver’s License Record Check.
  5. Students who are authorized to use a college vehicle must reserve a vehicle through the EMS scheduling program per college procedures.
