Driver Authorization for District government Employees and Contractors
District government employees and contractors must submit a copy of a valid driver’s license and execute the District government Vehicle Operator’s Acknowledgement on an annual basis in order to receive authorization to operate a motor vehicle to conduct District government business. In cooperation with District government agencies, the Office of Risk Management (ORM) will use information submitted through the ERisk Driver Authorization portal to determine a District Government employee or contractor’s eligibility to drive a motor vehicle to conduct District government business.
