Carthage maintains a fleet of vehicles for official College use. Fleet vehicles may be reserved and driven only by authorized drivers of the College.
Carthage’s fleet includes sedans designed for four to five occupants and vans designated for up to 12 occupants. For safety reasons, Carthage does not operate 15-passenger vans. The check-out fleet also contains a wheelchair lift van (rear-loading). This specialized vehicle may safely transport up to nine passengers and one passenger in a wheelchair. Due to the size of this van, it may not be driven in parking garages.
Become an Authorized Driver
Any student, faculty, or staff member may apply for authorized driver status. A signed application with a copy of your valid driver’s license is required for review, as well as a signed copy of the Carthage College Motor Vehicle Usage Policy Agreement. The applicant grants the College permission to perform a DMV record check. Depending on the issuing state, a DMV record check may take up to a week to process. All applicants will be required to participate and successfully finish a web-based van driver safety training class.
