FMCSA expands Pre-Employment Screening Program
Washington – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Oct. 5 announced changes to its Pre-Employment Screening Program for commercial motor vehicle carriers and other companies directly involved in hiring truck drivers.
The program now allows carriers and other eligible users to access a driver’s records – including three years of crash history and five years of roadside inspection history – to make better informed hiring decisions. Eligible account holders pay $10 for each requested driver record in addition to an annual subscription fee based on the number of trucks owned by the carrier.
FMCSA also released a mobile application version of the program.
