Driving Records

Know who’s behind the wheel with a driving record report.

Whether employees are driving a company vehicle or their personal vehicle for business purposes, a driving record report (MVR) can minimize your exposure to a lawsuit due to an accident. We verify the validity of an applicant’s driver’s license including violations, suspensions and revocations, type of license and restrictions, if any. Driving record reports are available in all 50 states.

Organizations cannot afford to forgo getting a driving record report on applicants. According to a report from NETS, NHTSA and OSHA, motor vehicle crashes cost employers $60 billion annually in medical care, legal expenses, property damage and lost productivity. These crashes can increase the cost of benefits including workers’ compensation, Social Security, and private health and disability insurance.  The average crash costs an employer $16,500. The average crash cost is even higher at $74,000 if the employee has a crash while on the job that results in an injury. If a fatality is involved, costs can exceed $500,000.

One frequently asked question we get is whether a DUI will show up on a driving record report or not. If the DUI occurred in the state that the applicant has a current driver’s license in, then it will show up. However, the best way to verify this information is to do a criminal record search in the jurisdiction/county that the DUI occurred.
