High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Training (register on-line)

The HOV training program has been modified to meet State of Arizona requirements. HOVs are defined as any full size van or Sport Utility Vehicle with seating capacity of 8-15, and full size cargo vans. Minivans and SUVs with seating capacity of less than 8 do NOT require HOV driver training or certification.

All HOV drivers (faculty, staff, students, volunteers) must attend a classroom training session, AND successfully complete a behind-the-wheel road test conducted by RMS or other authorized observer. Road tests conducted by RMS are scheduled separately from the classroom training, and must be done by appointment. The behind-the-wheel road test takes about 30 minutes to complete. Departments may conduct the behind-the-wheel road test at their own convenience with their own staff upon prior approval and authorization by RMS. Those interested in conducting their own behind-the-wheel road tests should contact John Murphy at 621-4551 or for orientation and approval. For details on these new requirements, and other important policy changes, see the new UA Fleet Safety Policy.

Classes are subject to cancellation or re-scheduling based on the number of registrations received.

Training Location: University Services Annex (USA) Building room A104

To register for an HOV training session, or a behind-the-wheel road test, contact Josie Strahle at 626-1136 or or register on-line. For questions about the training requirement and HOV policy, contact John Murphy at 621-4551 or
