Operator License Validation
University Administrative Policy requires all university employees who operate motor vehicles owned or leased by the university to have their operator license reviewed on an annual basis.
University Administrative Policy #3342-5-12.5 states:
- All university employees who operate motor vehicles owned or leased by the university shall have the validity of their operator licenses reviewed on an annual basis. The department head, director, dean, or other administrator responsible for the employee's respective department shall provide the Kent State University Department of Public Safety a list of names and operator license numbers of all employees authorized to operate motor vehicles owned or leased by the university. The Department of Public Safety will check the validity of the employees' licenses through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles of the state of Ohio or other appropriate state. The director of public safety shall notify the appropriate submitting administrator of any employee not properly licensed to operate a motor vehicle. The employees' department shall be responsible for the cost of the license validity check.
Please forward this information using the Employee Motor Vehicle Operator License Validation form no later than September 30th each year so that a prompt check can be administered for you and your employee(s). Also forward a validation form with new employee information for an initial check when an employee begins driving for your department regardless of the time of year. The charge for each motor vehicle operator license check will be $8.50 for Ohio and $18.00 for each out-of-state license check. Therefore, please supply the account name and number to IDC for these license checks along with the name and phone number of the contact person in the event that a problem is discovered.
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. If you have questions concerning this correspondence, please contact Associate Director Dean Tondiglia at 330-672-3070.
