This article What Is A DAC Report And How Will It Effect Your Job Opportunities? is right. DAC is just like the credit bureau, lame as sh--. They do inaccurate reporting and when you go to call them or attempt to repair any inaccurate report they do nothing. And why should they, you are not making them money not paying them anything. The trucking companies pay them a fee plus membership to get reports. Just like the credit Bureau, try to correct anything and its a act of god. Know that they side with what every a trucking company reports. The problem is trucking companies do not want to get up off there you know what and do there own work. Instead they are leaving it to companies like HireRight to make there decision for them.

I own 15 trucks and 22 box trucks, employ over 52 truckers, and I use to use there service. I had a driver who work for a large trucking company for 12 years. Never had an accident or wreck or ticket. He was involved in an wreck where no tickets were given and classified as a no fault accident. We know someone was at fault just could not tell. The company after his 12 years fired him and reported it to DAC as his fault. He claimed unemployment and received it. Now we all know how states HATE to pay unemployment, however without argument from the big trucking company he was working for they paid his unemployment. That told me right there he was wrongful discharged. I attempted to help him clean up his DAC report with no avail. Of course I hired him four years ago and he still has not had a accident or ticket he is a great safe driver. So DAC yea just like the credit reporting agency inaccurate and from a business owner stand point do your own back ground check.

Here is a TIP. Did you know that when you do a 10 year check with a state database or Fed database if the applicant does not list all his address they will not show up. In other words, let say he served time in FL. But now lives in VA. If he never list FL as an address the criminal records would not show up. The criminal records from one state to another does not communicate and neither does there database. The Fed's are the same way. The Fed's unless you do the fingerprinting and send them in is the only way any criminal activity show up on the Fed data base

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.
