This one is new to me also. I never heard it mentioned the entire time that I drove and that was 1998-2008. So what is the DAC report? Who's in charge of it? Is it automatic or do the company's send info to it? Is it free for me to check my own on a web site somewhere?

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.

DAC report is like a DMV report, only for commercial drivers.

You can request on Here

It's free or you can call them . Takes about 15 days to receive.

Companies will send accident, tickets, and various other info to your DAC file.

Well here is something else that sounds against our rights. My understanding is that for any other job, except trucking, the only thing that can be said is... if the individual actually worked there and the dates they worked and also they can say we would or would not hire them back. Think I will start checking into this one to. I can not wait to get back into trucking, but I have a long term goal to make it better. Not really sure how to do it but this web site is certainly a great start. Can't thank everyone that keeps it going enough!

Thanks for the info David. Think I will request mine just out of curiosity. I worked for a couple small companies in the past and not sure if they even participate. That seems to be the case here. Looks like the company you worked for would have to file a report against you.

I think the dac just covers drug and alcohol incidents. I requested mine and it didn't have any traffic violations. For that I had to request my dmv record

The DAC can have just about anything on it that the company you worked with chooses to put on it. You could scrape a tire on a curb and they can call it an accident on your DAC. I'm not saying that is a common practice, but it is simply a way for the trucking companies to share information on a drivers performance. Not everyone uses the DAC report, but most companies will refer to it when hiring a new driver as one of the indicators that helps them get a measurement on the type of driver they are looking into.

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

That seems completely impossible. People pronounce it "dack" and surely you've heard it mentioned by other drivers at some point. It's a staple of hiring in the trucking industry, especially amongst the major carriers.

I've always wondered how DAC was legal because you're right - it's setup to intentionally circumvent the laws as far as I can tell. I've always thought that.

Thank you for the link. I had my permit a few years back and unfortunately never found a truck to practice with. Actually, I did have a truck to practice with. It was a really old Peterbilt with no brakes on the steering axle and even the owner of the truck had to pull over some times to get it into gear. He ended up selling it after a couple weeks of me practicing and didnt buy a new truck. So I lost my practice truck... I couldnt afford to rent a penske truck so... I ended up finding local construction work to get me by. But I don't think Ill ever be satisfied until I get into a truck and running solo. I called HireRight and they helped me over the phone. I wanted to see if I even had a DAC report and they ensured me that I do not have a dack report... I felt kinda funny asking for D, A, C after she called it DAC as a word. But now I know...Thank you guys for this forum. my purpose of the post is to say that you can actually just call and they will tell you if there is anything about you in the system... Im not sure if they can go into the specifics if there is but they can say there is nothing...
