Best Practices for Driver Safety

Queen’s University drivers must carry a valid Ontario Class G driver’s licence or equivalent from another jurisdiction while driving on university business.

Private Automobile Usage

Employees may use their personal automobile on company business if it is legally registered and in safe, road worthy condition.  The university does not provide insurance coverage of private automobiles on university business and cannot purchase liability insurance coverage on behalf of the owner of a personal vehicle.  Employees who choose to drive their own vehicles on university business must carry a minimum of $1,000,000 third-party liability insurance.

Fleet Vehicle Coverage

The university's insurance policy for University owned or fleet vehicles provides $5,000,000 in third-party liability coverage, as well as collision and comprehensive coverage for models three years old or newer.  Damage to older models is covered by the University's self-insurance program. In the event of a claim involving private passenger and light commercial vehicles, a $1,000 all perils deductible applies.

Winter Driving

Safe driving practices in the winter are very similar to safe driving practices at any other time of year.  

If you have been involved in a vehicle incident please fill out the Vehicle Incident Report.

Queen’s Rental Vehicle Coverage

All staff, faculty and students renting vehicles on university-sanctioned business must follow specific payment requirements.
