I am trying to get my DMV record and I know it has changed since I have looked at it last but I am not in my state at this time and I would like to know what websites I can go to, to get it for reasonable, cheap or free but I need it for me.

Trying to fill out some applications for some companies and need i plus I am going to probably filling out the trucking truth multiple companies application too.

Thanks so much.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

The website depends in the state you live in. Anyone's 3 year MVR is available online, but each state has their own website and charges a different amount.

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

Okay. I am in Virginia so I guess I will start there. Would you say that is sage to get it online or should I actually go to the DMV? confused.gif

I didn't know you could get it online. I've always just gone to the DMV. For something like that I'm usually in and out in 10 minutes

Go to the DMV website where in the state you have or had the liscence in. In NC you can download a non-certified copy instantly and/or have a certified copy mailed to you.

C.T. for reasons that I have not been directly told other than some very small backing up issues, like for instance in very tight quarters, I was let go without even being given a safety coaching conference call and if I was given that I can tell you that I would have taken extra training. I do not want to push the blame on Swift entirely because like in a comment that Old School had posted in another thread of mine, I could have practiced in a Petro, TA, Loves etc. parking lot and gotten better. The thing of it is, it didn't matter how hard I tried to trip plan correctly I seemed to have a hard time getting to my stops on time.

I am excited to get extra training and hopefully someone can teach me how to do proper trip planning and that way I can be an overachiever at my next company, at least I will be there for a while. I do want to note that it was not because I didn't give it my best or just did it hap hazardly because that is simply false. When I did pretrips on several occasions I would literally craw from front to back of truck just to double check and make sure nothing was wrong with the equipment or trailer. I would double check my equipment on top, check tires 2 times, made sure everything was secure and rockin rolled down the road.

I really could say that my pit falls would of had to been trip planning and close quarter backing period. I wish I could call and talk on the phone because I feel like I will just make everyone on here judge me as though I didn't try but I did and I have not quite I am just down for a short time. Called the dac repair people and hopefully get things straightened out. Right now I am focusing I on filling out my homeschool diploma transcript and getting certified in Solid Works and engineering program I have always wanted to know how to operate and then engineer a dream of mine while trucking. I think for right now in order to get better at my craft I will go local Lord willing and then after I get a full diploma and a certification in Solid Works then I will go back to over the road. I just need to really get some serious practice in to build confidence and extra consciousness.

Over The Road:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Hey Victor glad you still have a positive attitude. I don't anyone here will judge you as you say, you've been around for a while and know how you approached the career. I will say this however. Driving locally is by no means easier than otr. It's possibly the other way around. You have a different set of challenges to deal with and most likely will have to deal with tight spaces and schedules more often. So I'm wondering what happened with your trip plans? Maybe we can help with that at least.
