Faculty, Staff, Students, and Volunteers, who will be driving University vans, WeCars, or their own personal vehicles for official Carson-Newman sanctioned 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.

Once you have completed the class, your name will be placed on the University’s insurance policy and the list of Approved Drivers. 

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.
