The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees during its May meeting approved changes to the University Vehicle Regulation and authorized the implementation of a UW vehicle policy that will govern the use of university and personal vehicles being used for UW business.

The revised UW Regulation 3-179 and associated vehicle policy are the result of committee work the past 18 months and numerous discussions among campus stakeholders.

Among the changes that take effect July 1:

  • New definitions and guidance for the use of "university vehicles" and "private vehicles being used for university business";
  • Updated driver qualification standards, including requirements for Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) checks;
  • Clarification of who may be transported in vehicles being used on university business;
  • Implementation of a waiver process for non-university passengers traveling in private vehicles used for university business;
  • Detailed procedures for procurement, licensing, transfer, disposal, service and repair of university vehicles; and
  • A deductible provision that requires departments to pay a deductible for at-fault accidents involving university vehicles.

The documents and FAQs can be read at .

Additional information will be disseminated as July 1 draws closer and specific processes are implemented.  For questions and additional information, email the Risk Management Department,
