So when I applied to prime I didn't mention sliding into a ditch because all the accident history they where asking about was with other vehicles or tickets. I had slid into a ditch because of snow and less than stellar tires. I drove out and went home and filed a claim with my Insurance company to get it fixed...it happened in the middle of nowhere and no people or police where involved. I'm looking at this packet they gave me and the category is simply "accident and incident record". Should I list it?

Couldn't hurt . . . it wasn't an "accident" in the sense of involving another vehicle, just an insurance claim between you and your insurance company . . . it really shouldn't have any bearing and you have ALREADY been accepted to Prime . . . when all else fails, call your recruiter for real answers to these specific types of questions as it is in THEIR (his/her) best interests to get you past all the potential hurtles as that is how they make their "mana."

In Massachussetts,if you file a claim with your insurance,it shows up on your DMV record.

More than likely the same in your state.

Dm:

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.

Since u filed a claim I wouldn't take any chances and put it down. Better safe than sorry, you don't want them catching you in a lie.
