Using Cars for Center for Service Programs


Driver Approval Process

To become a Center for Service approved driver, you must first compete the college Driver Safety program, which includes:

  1. Filling out an application (pdf) below, also available at the Center for Service
  2. submitting a copy of your driver's license, and
  3. completing an online Driver Safety Program

If you are interested in becoming certified to drive an E-350 van, a road test is required and can be scheduled through the Transportation Office once you have completed the Driver Safety Program.

After completing the College Driver Safety Program, you must schedule a time to come to the Center for Service to complete some additional training and paperwork in order to drive for one of our programs. Please email to schedule this final, 15 minute step. 

This whole process must occur even if your program intends to use a personal vehicle.

Other information:


Only drivers certified by both the College's Driver Safety Program and the Center for Service may reserve Center cars, and they must be used for a Center for Service program.
