DD Form 1970

By | September 10, 2016

The Department of Defense is a very important branch of the federal government. As a member of the department, you will be permitted to utilize vehicles that belong to the federal government. For this reason, the DOD is responsible for keeping track of every official that utilizes one of these vehicles. Before utilizing a government vehicle, you will need to complete the DD For 1970. This document aids in tracking motor vehicle usage, mileage, time traveled, and operators.

Official Document

This is an official document that must be signed by the operator and vehicle dispatcher. When you return the vehicle, the dispatcher will complete the form by inputting the return time and ending mileage. Once the agreement is finalized, it will be kept in the Department of Defense official record files.

The Benefits

The form 1970 is truly beneficial and will give the military the ability to keep track of their motor vehicles. If a vehicle and soldier winds up going missing, military officials will be able to scour through their records and quickly find out where the vehicle was going and which soldier took it. This will help to ensure that they’re able to track down the soldier and vehicle as quickly as possible. And of course, the document increases the likelihood that the vehicle will be returned in the same condition that it left the base.
