The Importance of Motor Vehicle Reports
When transporting goods, services, and people, it is imperative to know who is behind the wheel. Mistakes made while on the road can put your company at risk for lawsuits and costly litigations. Obtaining a motor vehicle report (MVR) is necessary for any employee that will be driving a company car or utilizing his or her own vehicle for company use. MVRs can provide insight into an applicant’s personal habits and behaviors behind the wheel. It is important to note that in some states, certain convictions such as driving under the influence (DUI) may not be included in a general background check but will be disclosed in a motor vehicle report.
What Does a Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) Include?
Your applicant’s driving history report may include any or all of the following, in addition to their full name, and driver’s license number:
- Status (Valid, Suspended, Revoked, or Withdrawn)
- Issue Date & Expiration Date
- Dates of suspensions and revocations
- Auto accident reports
- Driving restrictions, including glasses or hearing aids
- License suspensions and revocations
- Special licenses, including tank and hazardous materials licenses
Common violations included in an MVR include:
- Driving without a license
- Failure to carry proof of insurance
- Failure to follow traffic laws such as yield and stop signs
- Reckless driving
- And other violations
