The Universities of Wisconsin continues to discourage the use of 12/15 passenger vans. However, if it is necessary for an employee or student to use a 12/15 passenger van when all other options have been exhausted, it is imperative that the 12/15 passenger van requirements are communicated to your campus community and adhered to. All requirements apply to both fleet and business rental of 12/15 passenger vans. 


  • Twenty-five (25) years of age or older,
  • Completion of a van training program which meets the standards established by the Department of Administration/Bureau of State Risk Management. Authorization and proof of certification as a van driver must be received by the UW System institution’s risk manager, or delegated party, prior to using the van,
