Motor Vehicle Reports – Any State
An employer may be considered negligent when hiring drivers without checking driving records. Even if you only send employees on an occasional errand, whether in company or private vehicles, you may be legally exposed in case of an accident.
Record Contents: MVR reports contain state driving record information back at least three years, possibly up to seven years, depending on state policies. Some states make any infraction involving drugs or alcohol a permanent part of a driver’s record. Reports may contain physical description, license information, infractions, home address, and possibly previous driver’s license numbers. Some states no longer supply some of this information due to restrictions.
If a DWI/DUI offense is the target information, it will usually appear in a criminal record, and not always on the driver’s license check after 3 years.
