In order to stay compliant with policy changes made by the Department of Administration (DOA), the following 12 and 15 passenger van use guidelines are now in effect. Please refer to these new guidelines.
No 12 or 15 passenger van travel beyond the State of Wisconsin or Minnesota is allowed through UWRF fleet.
Drivers must be at least 25 years old, no transporting of students under the age of 18, and no towing of trailers is allowed with state vehicles.
A training course is required for all 12 and/or 15 passenger travel. This applies to both UWRF fleet vehicles that are 12 and/or 15 passenger in nature and include similar vehicles rented from Enterprise.
Training will be arranged through Facilities Management on a regular basis. Sessions will be provided as needed based on demand. Individuals are encouraged to attend the training closest to their intended travel date due to quarterly and mileage restrictions being applied. Class size requires four persons and is four hours in length (time includes both classroom instruction and 30 minutes behind the wheel). Cost for training is $50 per person and is the responsibility of the Department.
NOTE: Training is not good for more than a three month period unless certain mileage or hourly conditions are met (generally 400 miles driven quarterly or 10 hours of driving behind the wheel).
