Approval to drive
Driving approval is required to drive college vehicles or rentals.
Drivers must be 21 years old or older.
An Oregon driver license is required. Out-of-state license holders may be granted one-time only driving approval at the
discretion of the Director of Campus Services.
Driving approval is valid for two years for staff members and for one year for students.
A staff member must supervise student drivers. When multiple vehicles are used, a staff member must be in the caravan
at all times.
Reasons for Declining Driving Approval (including but not limited to):
•Two at-fault accidents in the past three years More than two minor traffic convictions in the past three years •A combination of
one at-fault accident and one minor traffic conviction in the past three years Operating under the influence of liquor or drugs or with
an unlawful blood alcohol content Failure to stop or report an accident Negligent homicide, manslaughter, assault involving the
operation of a motor vehicle •Driving on a suspended or revoked license • COCC Speeding Violation.
If a driver has a DUII on their driving record and has completed a Diversion Program to drop charges, they will need to provide proof
that the DUII charge was dismissed due to the Diversion Program to be eligible to drive COCC vehicles. Until the documentation is
received, the driver will not be able to apply for driving approval until three years after their arrest date. Depending on the severity of
the violations, approval can be granted at the discretion of the Director of Campus Services or the Vice President for Administration.
Van reservations are submitted through a Webviewer request. Please check with your administrative assistant to submit these
requests. One-week notice is required for reservations of most fleet vehicles. One-month notice is required for: three or more
vehicles; 15 passenger vans; or the request is for three consecutive days or longer. Requests for vans used throughout the term will
be accepted 2 weeks prior to the start of the term. Department Administrators will be contacted prior to the start of each term to
place requests for scheduled field trips. If the reservation is on a weekend, please ensure arrangements are made to pick up keys
before 4 p.m. on Friday or 1 p.m. during the summer term. Each vehicle has a designated parking spot where it is to remain until your
reservation pick up time. On your return, park the vehicle in its designated spot. Prompt return of the vehicles is mandatory because
vehicles may be scheduled again for another department on the same day. A late drop-off fee of $25 may be charged for vehicles
returned to Campus Services after the return date/time specified in the original reservation request. Please visit our website for
reservation information.
Keys and fuel cards
In most instances, each van key will have its own Pacific Pride and Chevron card for your convenience. Fuel cards will be signed out to
you at pick up. Please verify cards before signing as these will be your responsibility. Please drop off the vehicle keys after each use
to Campus Services. Campus Services will verify the beginning mileage before your arrival. The Campus Services kiosk will be used to
check out the keys and credit cards. Please confirm this information before you leave and if there is a discrepancy please see Campus
Services before you leave with the vehicle. Fuel cards are to be used for COCC or Enterprise vehicle fuel only. Using cards for
unauthorized purchases constitutes fraud and the user will be held liable. The charge for usage of COCC fleet vehicles is $0.82/ mile,
there is a minimum of a $35.00 charge. All vehicles must return with at least ¾ of a tank full, if it is returned under ¾ of a tank there
will be a department charge of $25.
All cancellations or modifications must be made prior to 48-hours in advance of your scheduled rental. If a cancellation is made
within the 48-hour window or there is a no show, the department will be charged $25 per vehicle.
The student/staff driver’s department may be charged the first $500.00 deductible in certain circumstances. This would be determined
by the insurance carrier. COCC will not assume financial responsibility for damage caused by the negligence of the driver renting a
COCC or rental vehicle. This includes, but is not limited to, situations where the driver was not acting in good faith, had been using the
vehicle for non-COCC related reasons, failed to meet licensing requirements or comply with these regulations. In these cases, the
driver may be required to pay all costs resulting from the accident. Anyone in the vehicle who is charged by public officials for any
non-legal actions will be individually responsible and not covered by COCC or any of its representatives or insurance.
Driver initial: __________
Body damage or accidents in or on the vehicle must be reported within 24 hours to Campus Services and Campus Public Safety. Any
other issues--including vehicle maintenance-- that need attention should be reported to Campus Services within 24 hours. Rarely,
vehicles may be deemed unsafe to drive and must be pulled off the line for immediate maintenance. We will do everything we can to
supply a substitute vehicle on these occasions but we recommended that all vehicle users have a contingency plan in place on the
chance no other vehicle is available.
Users are responsible for removing all garbage from vehicles and maintaining its cleanliness. Pets, smoking, smokeless tobacco and
alcohol are prohibited in all rental vehicles, COCC or outside rentals. Failure to abide by these rules will result in the department
incurring a $25.00 charge and possible relinquishing of future rental rights.
All college vans are equipped with a set of tire chains as well as studded tires during the legal period of November 1 to April 1. Use of
chains and choosing to drive in inclement weather is at the user’s discretion. Any financial liability resulting from negligence of the
driver will not be assumed by COCC. By signing this form, you are agreeing that you know how to properly attach chains to tires and
drive appropriately with chains on in inclement weather conditions.
Fleet Track
A GPS tracking device has been installed in the vehicle to monitor speed and location. The College receives weekly reports that include
incidents where a COCC driver has gone over 80 mph or 15 mph over the speed limit in a 2 minute threshold. COCC drivers who
appear on the report for either of these incidents will be notified and receive one verbal warning. If a COCC driver appears on the
report a second time, within a year period, COCC driver privileges will be suspended for one year from the date of suspension. After
the one year suspension, the driver may reapply for approval to drive COCC vehicles.
Emergency Service
In case of emergencies where the vehicle cannot be driven call 541-383-7775 or for after hours and weekends call the Campus Public
Safety, cell phone at 541-383-7272 to relay any problems.

U.S. Department of Transportation Large Van Advisory:
The risk of a rollover crash in a 15-passenger van increases, as the van is more fully loaded. The risk rises as passengers are
added, and once the van has 10 or more passengers, the rollover risk is greatly increased. Placing a load on the roof also contributes
to this increased risk of rollover. These two conditions change the van's center of gravity. As a result, the van has less resistance to
rollover and handles differently from other passenger vehicles making it more difficult to control in an emergency situation. Most
vehicle rollovers are single vehicle crashes in which the vehicle runs off the road and overturns when it strikes a ditch, embankment,
soft soil, or other object.
Drivers must be well rested and maintain a safe speed for weather and road conditions. Drivers must be especially cautious
on curved rural roads and maintain a safe speed to avoid running off the road. If the van's wheels drop off the roadway, gradually
reduce speed and steer back onto the roadway when it is safe to do so. Roof racks are provided on some vans. Overloading these roof
racks increases the risk of rollover. Do not put heavy objects in the roof racks.
Eighty percent of people killed in rollover crashes in 15-passenger vans were not wearing seat belts. Passengers can
dramatically reduce their risk of being killed or seriously injured in a rollover crash by simply using their seat belts. All vehicle occupants
should always wear seatbelts. Drivers should be responsible for enforcing the use of seatbelts.
When a 15-passenger van is not full, passengers should sit in seats that are in front of the rear axle. More than 15 people
should never be allowed to ride in a 15-passenger van. Because 15- passenger vans are substantially longer and wider than cars, they:
require more space and additional reliance on the side-view mirrors for passing do not respond as well to abrupt steering maneuvers
require additional breaking time.
