Driving Minimum Standards

The objective of this Minimum Standard is to provide a framework for approved staff, students, volunteers and visitors driving University authorised vehicles. The University acknowledges its responsibility to provide safe vehicles and to ensure that they are properly maintained. Vehicles must be selected and used only for the purposes intended and by authorised and competent persons, and in compliance with all road rules, traffic laws and licence conditions.

This Standard provides the specifications for authorised vehicles.  It also provides the requirements that Organisational Units must comply with if they own University vehicles that are not managed centrally by Commercial Services Development (CSD).
