Due to the increased risk of accidents, Texas A&M University now has specific guidelines for the use and operation of full size
passenger vans. Please review these regulations before requesting van rental. One
requirement of driving full size passenger vans is Van Safety Training. This web-based
course covers topics that will help reduce the risk of rollover. The cost of the
training is $10.00 per training and will be billed to the department. To sign up
for this 20-30 minute course, please fill out the
Request for Van Safety Training or MVR Form and submit. Other safety material
is available in all the large capacity vans and at the Transportation Center.

The Transportation Center does allow vans to be used to tow trailers if the vehicle
is equipped with a towing package. It is strongly recommended that no one be allowed
to tow unless they have previous towing experience. For more information on van
safety visit the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s web page.
