Enter the driver’s name and phone number in the topic field (just name one driver, even if there are several drivers.) State the purpose of the trip and the destination in the location field. Once you have completed your booking, you will receive a booking confirmation in your inbox.

  • Remember to update your booking in Outlook if you have to make any changes.
  • If you book a car for a trip out of town, please note the number of vacant seats and your phone number in the booking, so that other interested colleauges can contact you for a vacant seat, instead of booking another car for the same trip.

  • The car must not be used for any private purposes, including shopping on the way.
  • The car must not be used to transport private persons/children. It is not permitted to pick up or bring children in connection with the use of the department’s cars.
  • By signing the solemn declaration in the car folder, the employee agrees that the car will only be used for official purposes.

Returning cars

Remember that the mileage log book MUST be filled out. Check whether the previous driver has registered the number of kilometres correctly. After use, it is important that you return the car at the agreed time, and at its home location.

Upon return the car must be emptied of waste and personal belongings. The mileage log book must be updated with information about the purpose and destination of the trip. The mileage recorder must be checked and the total number of kilometres must be recorded. If there are errors or defects in the car, they must be reported to bce@au.dk.

Fines and accidents

Anyone authorised to use an official car is responsible for complying with the provisions of the Road Traffic Act. Any speed or parking fines are covered by the driver of the car.

The Danish state is self-insured, and no comprehensive motor insurance or third-party liability insurance is taken out for official cars when used in Denmark.

If a traffic accident occurs while driving, the incident must be described and the name, address, insurance company and policy number of the counterparty must be noted.
