So I got my DAC report from Hire Right just to see what all was in it. Now I'm trying to see if I have anything negative that would hinder me in going thru another company-sponsored cdl training program, but I dont see anything. I'm actually not sure what I should be looking for within the DAC report. The company I got my class A with has me as a "rehire" and my work record as "satisfactory." When I was with that company I completed 10 almost 11 months of my 1 year contract and had to quit due to personal issues. And of course they still sent me the bill (lol). I really don't want to go back to that company to get my class A again. I want to go thru another company to get my class A. So my question is what would be on my DAC report that would hinder me from trying to go thru another company training program?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

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.

I basically just want to know what phrases on the DAC report would stop a company from training me? Because I dont see anything that would be considered a negative report.

We don't know what might keep you from getting hired Shev. I had a terrible time getting my first trucking job. I still don't know what the hindrance was. Your concern with your DAC is probably misdirected. There is a lot of things they look into besides your DAC report. All you can do is start putting out applications. Trust me, being persistent will be your best approach.

Somebody will take you, just don't do something stupid like quitting one month shy of your obligation. None of the long list of companies i thought would be good places to start would touch me. In the end, what I thought was irrelevant. Just get in somewhere, stay there and get some valuable experience, and then reassess your situation. Never quit short of your contractual obligation. It will be a huge hindrance, as you see now.

Shev, you said you GOT your class A and worked 10-11 months?? So why would you need training again? Maybe an orientation, and drive test, maybe a little time out with a trainer, since that license can be considered stale?

If your 1st company was CRST, that could be an issue. Like the others have said, the more you share....the more those guys can help you.
