Employment Driving Records are often used as the first part of the employment background check process.
A seriously questionable driving record may be an indication of more serious issues that would make someone a doubtful employee.
It should be noted that MVR’S provided by insurance companies may only be used to determine insurability and are not suitable for use in employment screening as they do not comply with Federal laws that apply to the employment screening process.
Moreover, our employment driving records are instant, so decisions can be made quickly concerning the hiring process.
