Motor Vehicle Records

MVR reports are a combined abstract of multiple records. These reports include driving records, vehicle history records and other vital records related to vehicle titling and registrations. Driving abstracts also include an individual’s driving history. MVRs contain vital information of an individual’s Driver's license, deducted DMV points, driving restrictions like glasses and hearing aids, Special endorsements, including tank and hazardous materials, State-specific rules, regulations, and requirements.

Depending on the state of residence a Motor Vehicle Report is obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles. This report contains Validation, Expiration date, tickets, accidents and points. The record may be certified or non-certified subject to the state.

Why do you need to verify Motor Vehicle Records?

As employers, you need to know who's behind the wheel, especially when transporting goods, services and people. Companies should order driving history reports for all employees who drive company or personal vehicles for business.

MVR reports assist employers to achieve compliance with FMCSA and Department of Transportation regulations. This is crucial when hiring an individual especially because some states do not list convictions for Driving Under Influence (DUI) on criminal court records. Our Motor Vehicle Reports (MVRs) provide a comprehensive review of individual driving records, including offenses and citations.

It is highly recommended that you should check the Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) and driving history of any applicant or employee driving a company vehicle, chauffeuring, entertaining clients or operating machinery.
