Driver Training and Record Request Information
Clearance to operate a motor vehicle must be obtained prior to operating a vehicle.
The University Fleet Manager maintains the list of current authorized drivers for the University. An employee must be listed on the list of current authorized drivers prior to driving a vehicle owned or leased by the University. It is the responsibility of the individual driver and the department to verify that the employee is currently authorized to drive a state vehicle in accordance with UTS 157.
To verify your status as an authorized driver please contact the University Fleet Manager at 458-7681.
The driving record check is only a part of the process to become an authorized driver. Below are the instructions on how to complete this portion of the process and the link to complete the driver training that is also required.

The University Fleet Manager will add an employee to the list of authorized drivers only when the University Fleet Manager has received an acceptable Driving Record from UTSA PD and notification from Human Resources that the Driver Safety Training is complete. Employees who do not complete the required annual driving record check or the required driver safety training, required every 3 years, may be removed from the authorized drivers list without notice.
