Vehicle Policy 

Policy Overview 

The TPK, LLC company vehicle policy gives employees guidelines for obtaining, qualifying, and using a company vehicle. A “company vehicle” is any vehicle TPK, LLC assigns to employees. This policy applies to all employees who use a company vehicle during and outside working hours.   

Qualifying for a Company Vehicle 

Employees may qualify for a company vehicle if they drive 15,000 miles or more per year for work purposes, need a company vehicle for their daily work, or are supposed to get use of a vehicle as a benefit.  

Contact Human Resources if you have not been assigned a company vehicle and believe you need one.  

To be eligible for a company vehicle, employees must sign this form and submit a copy of their driver’s license. Employees are only allowed to drive a company car if they have a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record for at least one year.  

A clean driving record means the employee has not been held at fault for a car accident or arrested on charges of violating vehicle and traffic laws. TPK, LLC can assign and revoke access to company vehicles at its discretion.
