Driving History (MVR)
A Driving History is the ideal way to identify candidates or employees with unsafe driving records to limit your risk. Records highlight driving history over the past 3-7 years and are available in all 50 states and Washington DC. Reports include all personal identifiers as well as offenses and citations. We retrieve standard motor vehicle records going back at least three years to identify prior violations, accidents, criminal charges, suspensions, convictions and license revocations. We also check for any restrictions on use and the status of the current license.
In some states, convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs cannot be found on the criminal court record and can only be revealed with a MVR examination. A motor vehicle records check is commonly used by companies for anyone applying for a job driving a truck, company car, or operating machinery. In addition to the obvious reasons for using this service, this is a highly recommended search for any position associated with “fiduciary responsibilities,” such as care, custody or control of company assets, equipment or supplies. This also includes “liable obligations” such as the safety and welfare of the public and fellow employees as a result of interaction during the course of performing a specific job. Even if the “fiduciary responsibilities” or “liable obligations” are not primary job functions, the liability is considerable and employers may wish to limit access to those positions to only employees with safe driving records.
