State Vehicle Reservations Login


To Reserve a Vehicle

Vans or sedans are to be reserved by faculty/staff only via the IPool Fleet reservation system. To reserve a vehicle click on the State Vehicle Reservations Login link above. When reserving a vehicle, faculty/staff must be in the I-Pool system.  To be entered into the system, a certified driving record & Authorization to Drive form must be on file with the University Police Department before reserving a vehicle. Authorization to Drive forms are located in the Forms page.

For multiple reservations reserved for the same day and time require a different driver listed for each reservation.

Vehicles may be reserved for use by recognized student groups; however, the reservation must be made by the advisor, not the student member of the group. Graduate Assistants may reserve state vehicles on the same basics as faculty/staff.

Van Safety "Coaching the Van Driver II"

The University Executive Committee has adopted a van safety program, based on a National Highway Transportation Safety Administration advisory.  Vans are not to carry more than ten (10) individuals (9 passengers plus the driver.)  In addition, drivers must have either a CDL License or must review & pass the Van Safety Drivers Course.  A 45 minute training session is offered with a final exam at the end of the session. The exam will be forwarded to the University Police for review.  An email will be sent to the driver advising authorization along with a certificate of completion mailed to the driver.

Van Training Presentation

Fleet Size

The fleet is comprised of 10 sedans (5 passenger each), 6 vans, 2 van with tows (10 passenger capacity, and two buses (1 @ 30 passengers, 1 @ 45 passengers.)

Vans are only assigned to groups of five or more, or for transportation of equipment.  

Bus reservations are made through the Athletics Department. Contact 301-687-4455.

Student Drivers

Approval for authorized student drivers for official university business must have a certified driving record in addition to a Student Authorization to Drive Form on file with the University Police.  Student driver authorizations expire every (12) twelve months. The department requesting such approval should be aware of the need for advance notice amounting to as much as two weeks before the student can be cleared.

Students generally have shorter driving histories than faculty  and staff. Therefore, no student who has a current assessment of any number of “points” for moving violations against his/her license will be cleared to drive state vehicles.  Exceptions to this requirement may be made by the Chief of Police after a review of an individual’s driving history.
