I ordered a copy of my MVR for $5 from PennDot. There is nothing on it but my contact info basicly, no accidents, no violations, etc. Is this the same report trucking companies will see or do they see some sort of super detailed MVR that will show me picking my nose that one time on the highway? I don't have anything to hide, no accidents, violations, suspensions, and so on, but just curious of the process.

Thanks!

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

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.

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.

Out of curiosity I went to the hire right site to see what information they provided however, it wouldn't allow me to sign up without using a company email address. Have you signed up and received info from this site? If yes, then how did you go about it?

I went to http://www.hireright.com/Consumers-Applicants.aspx#RequestForm

Just click "Request Copy of My Background" and you can fill out a form. Just filled mine out so in ~15 days I should have something. I'm only 25 and never even got a speeding ticket so all that will be on mine is summer jobs through college and stuff.

Always better to have as much information as possible, plus if there is something inaccurate on your report you can supposedly have them correct it. Better to do that BEFORE it becomes a problem I would think.
