Drivers License Approval for UM Vehicles
As you plan field work and other trips, please bear in mind the University rules regarding vehicle driver authorization. If you anticipate driving a UM vehicle, including the Department van, you must register on the Parking and Transportation Services website. Examples include field trips, Camp Davis, airport pickup, etc.
Parking and Transportation (PTS) Fleet Services has created a system for checking motor vehicle records. The online system will allow each person to log in and create their own profile. It also provides a way to share your driving status with a single or multiple delegate(s). This system will provide a more secure way to gather the information required for PTS Fleet Services to obtain a driving record on behalf of the University of Michigan.
The following URL will direct you to the online system – https://pts.umich.edu/internal/mvr
The system requires authentication using your unique name and Kerberos password. Once your motor vehicle record has been checked, you and your selected delegate(s) will receive email notification regarding your driving status at the University of Michigan. Email reminders will also be sent out when it is time to renew or update your profile.
1) You must include the following uniqnames in your Delegates list: ahudon, paulaf
And if Camp Davis related, include Chris Malvica: cmalvica
2) Type in the Department phone number, not your office or personal phone: 734-764-1435.
Also the Dept fax number: 734-763-4690.
3) Department id: 177000.
4) Department address: 2534 CCL 48109-1005.
5) Use shortcode 101250. (The form will not be processed unless you enter a shortcode.)
Anne and Paula must be able to check whether a driver has been approved for University vehicles.
No one will be allowed to drive a University vehicle, including the Dept van, unless he/she has been approved. Note that approval can take days or weeks for out-of-state licenses.

7. If this is your first time in the system or you need to be update or renew your request - click the Create Requestbutton. A box will pop up stating request sent - ok. You have successfully completed the process.
