Corra Group is assisting its trucking and transportation clients by offering the five year [Motor Vehicle Driving Record for Texas CDL Drivers. The five year MVR will display both medical certification and a more comprehensive list of traffic violations that will assist trucking companies with their employment screening and hiring process.
“To be compliant, it is necessary for all commercial drivers of vehicles in interstate commerce with a maximum gross vehicle weight rating of over 10,000 pounds to obtain and maintain a valid Medical Examiner's Certificate (ME Certificate),” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. Since the beginning of 2015, the Medical Examiner’s Certificate is displayed on the MVR for just about every state in the union.
“Texas is unique,” said Gustavson. “The DMV has both a three year and five year driving report. Many truckers used to run just the three year driving record as it would potentially raise fewer red flags by showing fewer traffic violations while still meeting with minimum Department of Transportation mandates. “But the much needed Medical Certificate is not featured in the Texas three year driving record search. It is only on the five year track. To accommodate our clients, Corra Group is moving all of its trucking companies over to the five year track and urging its new clients to do the same.”
Gustavson pointed out that this concern does not apply only to Texas based trucking and transportation firms. He noted many national trucking entities hire drivers from Texas as well from the other fifty states and that they should be aware to obtain the complete driving report on a new or current driver it is vital to run the five year Motor Vehicle Driving Record.
“We offer MVRs as well as complete trucking background checking packages to commercial drivers in all fifty states as well as Puerto Rico,” said Gustavson. “But it is mainly in Texas where clients need to be concerned about running the more accurate five year background check. We have been calling our clients and telling them of the new process or with national companies switching them over as they get in touch.”
Gustavson noted that to be compliant with the Department of Transportation, companies must conduct the Motor Vehicle Driving Record when the driver is first being hired and no less than every twelve months thereafter.
“Corra Group is constantly working to assist our clients in understanding the compliance mandates of the DOT,” said Gustavson.
