Click here for State policy on driving 15 passenger vans.

The University does not recommend the use of 12/15 passenger vans if other methods of transportation can be used. Rules now stipulate that all drivers must be at least 25 years of age, have completed the appropriate van-driver training course, and meet all other driver requirements, including 'Staying Current'. 'Staying Current' requires drivers to maintain a personal log so they can show that they drive at least ten hours or 400 miles in a large van each quarter (3 months).

Van training is offered through the Wisconsin Department of Administration. To accommodate direct charge funding string billing, you must sign up for the class via UW Madison Risk Management at <click here>. If you take the class, please inform the Risk Management office of satisfactory completion by mailing or faxing a copy of your van driver training card (fax 608-262-9082). Until your card has been recorded there, you will not be able to receive keys at the fleet office. The van driver training expires after three years from date of completion, or after two quarters (six months) of failure to achieve the 400 miles/ten hours standard.
