When hiring for positions in your organization which require a high level of trust and entail significant responsibilities on the future incumbent’s part, or a position where the candidate is going to be driving company vehicles, you need to know everything about who’s going to be behind the wheel, bother literally and figuratively.

Our host of services can help in this regard by providing extensive screening services when it comes to almost all of the more common background checks. We go one step further here, taking the meaning of knowing who’s behind the wheel quite literally by providing our clients with comprehensive motor vehicle reports on potential candidates.

Motor vehicle reports are an official document and issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to provide information on an individual’s driving history. The exact information included in each report varies from state to state. Commonly, the following information can be found on a motor vehicle report:

  • Traffic accidents
  • Driving record points
  • Traffic law violations, convictions and fines
  • Name
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Eye color
  • Hair color
  • License class
  • Special license endorsements
  • License restrictions
  • Date of license expiration

Records are kept and maintained on a 3-year driving history in general, with the period being longer in some states in the United States. This information is a fair assessment of an individual’s psyche when it comes to driving, while also revealing criminal tendencies in more extreme cases. A comprehensive review of driving offences and citations, if any, is present in the motor vehicle report.

When is Acquiring a Motor Vehicle Report Best?

In most cases, the Department of Motor Vehicles get requests for an official motor vehicle report from individuals who want verify the accuracy of official records. When it comes to corporate use, insurance companies generally require a motor vehicle report to determine feasibility of auto loans, and organizations do the same too when hiring someone for a position that either requires driving in a company vehicle, or requires immense trust necessitating background checks in every manner possible.

Regulations Involving Personal DMV Records

An individual’s motor vehicle report contains private sensitive information and measures are thus taken by the Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure this information is not divulged.

First off, a motor vehicle report cannot be requested by any entity except the person in question just to satisfy their personal curiosity; it must be used for an official purpose.

Secondly, the relevant information will only be released by the DMV if personal consent is first obtained from the individual. An issue that becomes almost non-existent when it comes to background screening for organizations, since the candidate is unlikely to refuse unless they have something to hide.
