Steps to Start Driving

Become the driver of a CalVans vehicle.
Start your own vanpool by following these simple steps.

Step 1:

Identify fellow workers willing to share a ride to and from your worksite. Depending on the number of riders, you will be assigned a 7-, 8- or 15-passenger van. Determine which riders would agree to serve as back-up drivers when necessary.

Step 2:

Download the Driver Application Form from this website. Make copies of the valid California driver’s licenses of everyone who may drive, including you and all potential back-up drivers. FAX the completed application form and driver’s license copies to CalVans at (559) 587-0714.
(CalVans will review California DMV records for each driver’s license submitted. Applicants with more than 2 points, a DUI within the past 5 years, or a reckless driving citation within the past 5 years will not be accepted.)

Step 3:

Provide proof (“green card”) of a recent Class B physical exam for you and all back-up drivers. If needed, you may call the CalVans office at (866) 655-5444 for assistance scheduling your physical.

Step 4:

Upon acceptance, a CalVans representative will contact you to schedule a brief orientation, to include daily operating procedures, requirements for submitting payments, and developing your Driver/Rider Agreement.

Step 5:

Receive a fuel card and the keys to the CalVans vehicle assigned to you.
