MVR Checks, also known as Motor Vehicle Report Checks or Motor Vehicle Records Checks, can be an important indicator of whether a potential employee is a safe and reliable motor vehicle driver. Motor Vehicle record checks will provide additional traffic-related offenses that may not be available through a background check with just criminal components.
Do you want to know more about a potential or current employee’s motor vehicle driving history? Here’s what you need to know about our MVR check services.
If your company is regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT), you are required by law to request full MVR checks (see below on DOT components, or contact ScoutLogic and we can help you) on all commercial drivers each year. Additionally, employers may choose to request driving records for potential or current employees as a way to monitor their driving behavior, mitigate their risk as an employer, and comply with all local and federal regulations.
It’s important to review your candidate’s driving records and safety data to ensure that you, as an employer, are making the right hiring decision. An MVR driving record check will help you:

When you conduct an MVR through the state of license issuance, it will identify the name of the individual as well as their license issue date, expiration date, status, number, and type. It also includes any endorsements, restrictions, suspensions, and other violations.
