Anyone needing to operate University-owned or leased vehicles should email their request to the Public Safety Office ( In addition, the process requires completion of the following items:

  • MVR Release Form (PDF)
  • MVR Consent Form (an e-vite will be sent to the applicant once the MVR Release Form is received in the Public Safety Office)
  • Review of driver safety training slides
  • Online quiz and acknowledgement form
  • $10 application fee

When completing the MVR Consent Form, please be sure this page is filled out completely and signed. Residents of New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington State must complete additional forms, which may be obtained at the Public Safety Office.

There is a $10 application processing fee, which may be paid online. If you are driving for a specific University department, this fee may be charged to the department. Please ensure the department name and account number are listed on the MVR Release Form.

Once we have received your approved motor vehicle record check, you will receive an email providing access to the driver training slides and review quiz. The training acknowledgment form in Section 2 of the quiz also must be completed.

Upon completion of the quiz/training acknowledgement form, you will be added to the OWU authorized driver list. Please ensure your information is up-to-date by providing current driver’s license information (e.g., expiration date) to the OWU Public Safety Department.

Thank you for submitting your application!
