Approved Drivers List
Employees, Students, Contractors and Volunteers, who will be driving University's vans, WeCars, or their own personal vehicles for official Carson-Newman trips, must first take a driving class through the Department of Safety & Security before they can be added to the University’s Approved Drivers list.
If you wish to become an approved driver, the FIRST step is to take your driver’s license and insurance information to the Treasurer’s Office, located in the Fite Administration Building located at 1646 Russell Ave. In addition, please complete the DRIVER'S AGREEMENT FORM electronically. Please contact the treasures office at 865-471-3206for an email address so you may send the completed form electronically. A DMV report will be ran and based upon the results, you will be notified if you have been approved to take the driving class.
Once approval is granted from the Treasures Office they will then notify the Department of Public Safety, and you will be contacted to schedule a time to take the driving class.
Before your scheduled appointment, you will need to:
- PRINT and/or download and READ the Driving Manual
- Save (Download) and FILL OUT the Driver’s Agreement Form electronically. The form must be signed by the Department Head which can also be accomplished electronically.
Once you have completed the class, your name will be placed on the University’s insurance policy and the list of Approved Drivers. You may NOT operate a vehicle under the University's insurance policy until you have been added to the list by the insurance company.
Please plan ahead and allow at least a week to complete the process. Last minute and rush requests may not be possible to accommodate.
Please feel free to call or stop by the office if you have any questions or need further information about the process.
