What is driver and MVR screening?

While hiring candidates to operate a motor vehicle for your business, MVR background checks verify candidates' driving records and public safety data.

The depth of information you can obtain from MVR varies from state to state. Yet, the driver and MVR data obtained from a department of motor vehicles or other government bodies that sanctions driver's license primarily underline candidate's license status, class, suspensions, violations, restrictions, convictions, and much more.

Why is driver and MVR screening important?

Businesses bear the liability for road safety when hiring someone in the position to drive on their behalf. A single accident is enough to subject you to the risk of litigations and defamation. Running MVR checks helps you look into the driving history of the candidate and gauge if the person can fulfil the safety criteria of the organization and the industry.

MVR background checks help you to:

  • Hire only responsible drivers for business-related fleets
  • Mitigate driver-related risks and loss potential
  • Maintain industry regulations and driver compliance
  • Protect your ../assets, employees, and customers
  • Strengthen the culture of trust among stakeholders
  • Safeguard from hefty insurance costs and liability claims
  • Manage ongoing risks through continuous monitoring
