This standard operating procedure describes best practice standards and requirements that must be met prior to driving a vehicle for DOC business.

DOC operates and maintains a vehicle fleet. This SOP outlines conditions for the use of motor vehicles on Departmental business.

Every DOC staff member, contractor, volunteer or any other person, eg board member, must agree to the conditions set out in this SOP prior to driving a vehicle on Departmental business.

This also applies to rental or leased vehicles or private vehicles for business use.

These documents are being made available outside DOC to share our best practice. Any use by members of the public is at their own risk and DOC disclaims all liability in reference to that risk.

As the documents were written for DOC staff they may include DOC-specific terms and reference internal documents only accessible to DOC staff. You may need further help to do the work described and also need to get authorisation. Caveats may apply.
