01 NCAC 38 .0408             NON‑STATE EMPLOYED PERSONS

Non‑state employed persons may accompany state employees driving state‑owned vehicles when they have an interest in the purpose of the trip and their presence is related to state business.  Students of universities and colleges may be passengers in state cars to attend athletic events and other activities approved by the institution, provided the proper account is reimbursed at the standard mileage cost rate by the student activity fund involved.  Non‑state employed persons, however, are not allowed to drive the state‑owned vehicle, except for drivers of blind or permanently disabled state employees.  Also excepted are graduate students enrolled in a state‑supported college or university whose educational training requires the use of a state‑owned vehicle.
