Safety Information - School Vehicles

School of Biological Sciences (SoBS) staff, postgraduate students and honours students are eligible to use SoBS vehicles for University related work, research and study. Other drivers such as visitors, honorary appointments and volunteers need to be authorised by the School before they can drive. Drivers holding a Learner’s permit or a red Provisional license are not authorised to operate a University owned vehicle. If the vehicle is a four-wheel drive vehicle the person may be required to complete a four-wheel-drive driver training course.

All users of departmental pool vehicles in SoBS are bound by the conditions outlined jointly by the University of Sydney WHS Guidelines for Use of Vehicles and the SoBS School Vehicle Procedures document. Other helpful websites include:


  • University Vehicles which outline restrictions on vehicle use and contains information on Roadside Assistance, Accident Insurance, Vehicle Service & Maintenance, Fuel Card Use, Toll Tags, Rental Vehicles and RTA information.

  • Webfleet User Guide which provides instructions on how to use the vehicle booking system.


Personal property belonging to vehicle users which is damaged or stolen whilst being conveyed in a vehicle is not covered by insurance.


Contact the Resources Officer to request access to the booking system.
