In transportation, there are four reports that most employers will request when reviewing applicants for driving positions at their company. These are:
In this four-part series, we’ll review these primary reports you need when screening your drivers, as well as best practices when ordering them from Driver iQ, Cisive’s transportation employment screening division.
CDLIS stands for Commercial Driver’s License Information System. This is a nationwide database administered by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), with information provided by state driver licensing agencies (SDLAs). This system helps ensure that each commercial driver has only one current Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), as well as one complete driving record. The database can help employers verify a driver’s current CDL, as well as the past three CDLs the driver may have held in other states.
Based on the information returned in the CDLIS report, employers may then run a Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) report on each license returned.
A new FMCSA rule change, taking effect May 9, 2022, requires that motor carriers must look at the previous three years of licenses held by a driver (the rule used to require only one year). The CDLIS report, while not required, is crucial in helping employers ensure they are being as thorough as possible while vetting the safety of their incoming and current drivers.
The CDLIS report returns the following information about the driver applicant or current employee:
Once the employer has this information, it can be used to order MVRs, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse reports, and the Pre-Employment Screening Program report.
