The process includes a DMV background check as well as a written test on basic driving knowledge. All applicants must have a valid US or Canadian driver's license.

Each student driver is responsible for contacting the Office of Parking & Transportation Services with updated information related to their driving record. An updated background check will be performed every six (6) months.
