Who Should Review Employee Driving Records?
Here are a few of the businesses that may need employees to drive while on the clock:
- Insurance agencies
- Real estate agencies
- Courier services
- Taxi and chauffeur services
Comply with Federal Requirements
In order to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requirements, you must review the driving records of all employees who regularly drive a commercial vehicle. When hired, you must review the past three years of the candidate’s driving record from any state in which the driver holds a commercial license. Then you are required to review their driving records once a year after hiring. USAFact can assist you with obtaining and reviewing these records to ensure that you remain compliant.
What a Motor Vehicle Record Discloses
When you pull a candidate’s motor vehicle record, you will receive their driving history from anywhere from the past three years to the past seven years. This information includes any driving violations that occurred in the U.S. and Canada.
This information will include the following:
- The license issue date and expiration date
- It’s type
- It’s class
- Any restrictions on the driver
- Any suspensions
- Any license revocations
