In case you missed it the PSP (Pre-employment screening program) is now live. PSP is designed to assist the motor carrier industry in assessing individual operators’ crash and serious safety violation history as a pre-employment condition.

Carriers should be using this program to check on all new drivers. The PSP website is located here. The cost to the company is only $10 per driver report. The PSP system allows motor carriers to search a driver’s history in multiple states. The fee remains $10 regardless of the number of states queried for a driver.

The Pre-Employment Screening Program is a screening tool that allows motor carriers and individual drivers to purchase driving records from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). Records are available for 24 hours a day via Web request.

Driver Information Resource records purchased through PSP contain the most recent 5 years of crash data and 3 years of roadside inspection data from the FMCSA MCMIS system on each driver.
