A motor vehicle report is used to check the applicant’s driving history including traffic violations, suspensions, revocations, type of license granted, and restrictions on use. This check is highly recommended for all employees that will be driving vehicles or operating equipment in the performance of their job duties. In some states, convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not on a criminal court record and can only be revealed through a DMV check.
We will obtain the following information:
- Full Name
- Current Address
- Date of Birth
- Driver’s License Issue Date
- Driver’s License Expiration Date
- Class (Operator, CDL, etc.)
- Status (Valid, Suspended, Expired, etc.)
All states have instant access to their motor vehicle records which means our clients can receive the Motor Vehicle Reports back as soon as they are entered. The only exceptions are Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon and Pennsylvania; these requests can have overnight turn around.
