Student Use of Government Cars
Students and trainees while on placement with ACT Health should not drive government cars.
The only exemptions are:
- Where the safety of the student/trainee may be compromised if they use a private car or taxi.
- Where the course objectives require a student/trainee to undertake clinical placement activities with minimal direct supervision. This is applicable to final year students only.
- To facilitate cross-campus mobility in a timely manner, enabling a community based and multi-site care delivery model.
Student Car Usage
Where the student’s use of a car is warranted, the supervisor must ensure compliance with the ACT Health Fleet Management Policy. This includes the completion with the student of the “Drivers check list” and the “Driver authorisation forms” and submission of these as required by the policy.Refer to our Fleet Management policy.
