Motor Vehicle Insurance

Students are not permitted to operate motor vehicles during program-sponsored activities or events. Duke Immerse instructors and/or support staff should never require students to drive a motor vehicle, and instructors/staff choosing to drive students during their programs must be sure that they have the proper driving authorizations from Duke.

Duke Immerse instructors or staff who plan to operate a motor vehicle during their study abroad/away program must be sure to obtain the proper credentials for legally operating a vehicle in the applicable foreign country/countries, and must obtain liability and collision insurance that will cover them and their vehicle(s) abroad. 

Duke highly discourages students from driving motor vehicles for personal travel while on their Duke Immerse programs. Students who plan to operate a motor vehicle must be sure to obtain the proper credentials for legally operating a vehicle in the applicable foreign country/countries, and must obtain liability and collision insurance that will cover them and their vehicle(s) abroad. See the “Driving while Abroad” section of this handbook for additional driving-related health and safety information.
