Corra Group is now offering PSP background checks. The PSP Report is the Pre-Employment Screening Check that is issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FCMSA) and offers trucking and transportation companies access to critical commercial drivers’ safety history data.

“The PSP gives our trucking clients access to their commercial driver’s 5-year crash and 3-year roadside inspection history,” said Nick Gustavson, Corra Group Co-Founder. "The PSP background check allows our clients to make better informed hiring decisions as they staff their fleets. A PSP report reveals all crash, inspection, and violation activity, regardless of whether the driver was convicted. In short, clients can use PSP to weed out insurance risks and to hire the safest drivers."

“We find a great many of our transportation clients are using the FMCSA employment screening report to gain insight into a potential employee’s driving habits and behaviors,” said Gustavson. “It’s great for any training program. The information in a PSP report can be used to develop individualized education focused on the most immediate needs for a particular driver."

Gustavson noted the PSP report will inform a potential employer who the driving applicant worked for at the time of a crash or inspection. "In short, the report will help ascertain what drivers can expect on the highways and how proper vehicle maintenance will keep them out of trouble.”

The FMCSA background search typically returns the same day as ordered. The convenience and rapid turnaround time make the PSP a true pre-employment screening instrument.

“You don’t have to wait around for the PSP report,” said Gustavson. “Many of our clients first order their job applicant’s motor vehicle driving records, or MVR. The MVR from most states typically returns in about thirty seconds. The employer can then tell if their candidate has a decent driving record or if the license is suspended or otherwise problematic. The employer can then determine if the driver is eligible for hire and if the insurance agency will insurance him."

“And then you run the PSP report,” said Gustavson. “If the PSP report is lousy, then the employer may want to look for another candidate. It saves a lot of trouble.”
