Mandatory: A legible copy of your driver’s license must be attached to the form.
Any employee, student, or volunteer operating a motor vehicle on official business or a sponsored trip, must be age 18 or older and complete an Authorization to Operate State Vehicles and Private Vehicles on State Business form. This form acts as a release to permit UALR to check the driving record, and anyone found to have an unacceptable record will not be allowed to drive.
Incidents which would deem a person as having an unacceptable driving record could include having excessive driving points (10+), a suspended or revoked driver’s license, a DWI offense, or lack of liability insurance.
These requirements are in compliance with the University of Arkansas System Vehicle Safety Program.
The authorization form should be submitted to the Office of Finance and Administration (SSC 425) with a legible copy of a driver’s license at least 10 calendar days prior to the travel date, to ensure enough time for the driving record check.
Once the driving record is received, a representative of the Office of Finance and Administration will inform the sponsor(s) or department head(s) of eligibility to drive on behalf of UALR. If the driver will be using a vehicle from the UALR Motor Pool, please note on the form and we will also notify Motor Pool when the driver is cleared.
If you have any questions or need further assistance, feel free to contact the Office of Finance and Administration at 501.569.3202.
