Colby students driving for the College as part of coursework, athletics, or part time employment must complete the following steps the first year they wish to drive:

  1. Fill out the Motor Vehicle Records Check Permission Form with any motor vehicle violations you have received in the last four years.
  2. Review and sign Colby Motor Vehicle Operation Requirements Acknowledgment.

  4. Complete the defensive driving Moodle and pass a short quiz.
  5. You will receive an email from HireRight requesting you login and submit your personal information to complete the motor vehicle records check.  The request email will have the subject: The President and Trustees of Colby College Background Verification Request for (your name).
  6. Once all the forms have been completed, you have successfully passed the defensive driving quiz, and your motor vehicle record is acceptable (per the Fleet Safety Policy), you will be notified by the Security Department that you are certified to operate a vehicle for Colby College.
