All drivers must submit a request for a motor vehicle record (MVR) check and receive approval before driving a university vehicle. Approval is valid for one year. You must submit a new request annually.

For drivers

MVR checks are processed through HireRight, the university's background check provider. After you submit your request, you will receive an email directly from HireRight with a link to complete your MVR check. The email will come from "HireRight Customer Support <>" with the subject line, "Iowa State University Background/MVR Check Request for Your Name." Please follow the instructions in the email and provide the required information.

Your MVR check cannot be completed until you provide your information to HireRight.

Requests will be processed as quickly as possible; however, we cannot guarantee a specific completion timeline. Some states have additional requirements that may extend processing by days or weeks. We encourage you to annually submit an MVR check request in advance of your expected travel dates.

Please see the university's Fleet Safety and Vehicle Use/Rental policy for additional information.

For department heads and managers

You are responsible for ensuring all staff and students who drive a departmental, university-owned vehicle have a current and approved MVR check. You are now able to submit a list of individuals in Cy Check to find out who is eligible to drive. After submitting the list, you'll have access to the most current information about your drivers. You can track the status of MVRs and expiration dates to ensure compliance.
