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.
