If accidents stay on my dac report for 7 years then does that mean I have to work for a company for 7 years until they fall off, assuming I dont get into any accidents for those 7 years ?

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I'm not exactly sure I understand your question. If you're thinking you are stuck somewhere for 7 years, that's not correct. If you have one year of safe driving on record just about anyone will hire you.

Is that what you're trying to figure out?

Naseer unfortunately you're going to have a heck of a time getting hired because of the 3 preventable in 2 months you previously posted about, one of which involving a railroad crossing. Have you used this link to Apply For Truck Driving Jobs? You fill out one application and the information you provide will be sent to many companies. Have you tried Western Express or C R England? They tend to be more lenient in their hiring requirements.

Well since you ARE currently at Western Express (I'm assuming your incidents happened at said company,) be happy for now, drive and stay put for a YEAR CLEAN (incident/accident free) and THEN, apply elsewhere, if you so desire the need to move on.

That's just IMHO .. but I'm sure others of TT will agree.

Wish you luck, good sir!
