Is a Hire Right report the same thing as a DAC ( DRIVE A CHECK ) REPORT?

Also, how do I get a 10 yr MVR or do I even need one of those since I've never had a CDL but did have a permit 15 or 16 years ago. ? Is it just the 5 year that I need?

Since I'm not originally from KY, I had a TN license, which shows up on HireRight. Within past 10 years I've had a license from IL as well, that doesn't show up on HireRight. I can't really remember when I transferred from IL to TN so that might be barely past the 10 year mark. Do I need to order an MVR from all 3 states or would it all follow me to KY?

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.

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

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.

The truck companies use hire right... and most companies want 3 to 7 years and some even 10 years so in tge safe side do ten years and yes you will have to pull Mvr from every state you had a license in within that time frame... now I didn't pull my Dac or Mvr I just put dates that I knew and didn't give any info that they didn't ask for.. if they ask for 3 years then give them 3 years and that's all dont do 4 years lol..

Thanks for the reply. So how do I go about getting those from other states? I don't have a clue what my dl numbers were.

You don't need your DL #. Just name, b-date and SS# should be enough. How do you think police look up your record when you "accidently" left it at home? :) :)

I was under the impression that MVR covers your complete driving record for every license you've had.

If you pull it in your home state it will give you your DMV record for that state but will show that you had a lic in other states if it applies.

I just had my trucking school pull mine for Nebraska but it showed I had at one time a Colorado lic. So if I wanted to pull Colorado DMV I would have to get ahold of them. I didn't worry about it because I know my Colorado lic was clean.

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:
