Because companies assume liability for their drivers
You need to know who's behind the wheel, especially when transporting goods, services and people.
If you employ personnel who drive for company business, you should order driving history reports. Because companies assume liability for drivers who operate equipment for business purposes, accidents caused by employees can result in costly litigation.
Our Motor Vehicle Reports (MVRs) provide a comprehensive review of individual driving records, including offenses and citations. Conduct a driving record check for DUIs, suspensions, administrative actions and other convictions not found on a criminal court record.
Ordering Motor Vehicle Reports
A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is required of drivers who operate large or heavy vehicles, carry 16 or more passengers, or transport goods used in commerce, particularly hazardous materials. These responsibilities necessitate drivers who are competent, skilled, and conscientious. It is vitally important for employers to check CDL records to ensure that an applicant has the capabilities and character needed for a job. IntelliCorp can search CDL records in a specific state and provide the complete and thorough reports you need to help avoid negligent hiring decisions.
