An MVR check includes all information provided by the State Department of Motor Vehicles including verification of license number, date(s) of violations, location of violations, court date(s), description of violation(s), failure to appear, license status, voluntary surrender of license.
TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY BENEFITS
Transportation industry driving jobs are inherently risky and dangerous because drivers spend most (if not all) of their time on the road. Furthermore, most transportation vehicles are larger, bulkier, and deadlier in accidents than traditional cars and trucks.
Add to this the complexity of hauling either passengers or products and it becomes easy to see just why the industry is considered high-risk.
It takes very little for drivers to cause serious harm on the road. Especially if they don’t hold sufficient training or if they aren’t skilled. A single wrong decision to drive tired can result in devastating injuries that claim lives and cost your business thousands of dollars. Drivers who drink or take other substances while driving can cause even more devastation.
Unfortunately, liability suits that stem from accidents resulting from driver error may not always come back on the driver. Instead, injured parties may hold the employer responsible, especially if the courts judge that the business in question failed to enact due diligence before hiring.
Businesses can significantly reduce the risk of receiving costly liability suits by committing to due diligence before hiring — and that starts with running an MVR Check on every single prospective driver who applies.
CONFIDENT HIRING DECISIONS
IMI’s MVR Check gives you the power to verify that prospective drivers have not only the right training and licensing, but also a long and safe history of driving for other clients. We utilize fast, accurate processes that scan and return results from a number of important databases, including the State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Through our MVR Check, we can verify:
- DOT Number
- Operating Authority
- Vehicle Registration
- Licensing (including level)
- Past violations or suspenions
- Speeding and parking tickets
- 3 to 10 years of driving history
- Point accumulation and history
This thorough approach to an MVR Check ensures that you know the whole truth about the drivers you hire. If you decide to move forward and offer the job, you can feel confident that you hired the right person for the job.
FAST, ACCURATE RESULTS
IMI Data’s innovative Intelligent Integration System makes accessing MVR Checks faster and more accurate than ever before. Integrate your MVR Check with pre-existing software platforms like PeopleSoft, HRsmart, iCims, KRONOS, and ORACLE, or run checks independently from our online login instead.
IMI’s screening platform gives you the power to screen a prospective driver from anywhere with Internet access. Screen from a smartphone, from a computer, from a tablet, or from within your current software suite. We’re flexible, yet never sacrifice speed or accuracy along the way.
At IMI Data Search we build compliance right into our platform. If there’s an issue, either a screening expert or the system will notify you so that you can fix the problem before you move on. Using our MVR Checks either natively or through an integration significantly reduces the risk of accidental non-compliance and user error.
