National Background Screening can provide a Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) in all 50 states, which is obtained through the state Department of Motor Vehicles. This report provides current status of the license and driving history. The history typically includes: points, tickets, accidents and administrative actions.
This search is extremely useful when an applicant could potentially be driving for the employer. Even if the job doesn't entail driving a company or fleet vehicle, employees that may be required to use their own vehicle to perform routine tasks such as trips to the office supply store should be checked for issues in their driving history.
In addition to being a great tool for driving issues, an MVR potentially reveals alcohol related driving offenses that may not be revealed by a criminal court search. It can also reveal substance abuse issues.
