Five-Year Crash and Three-Year Inspection History

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) developed the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) which allows motor carriers and drivers to purchase crash and roadside inspection data contained in its Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) database.

Data records purchased through the PSP will contain the most recent five years of crash data and three years of roadside inspection. Most data contained in the PSP report is not found in any other single source and may only be used for pre-employment screening purposes.

Key Benefits
  • Provides driver safety performance history
  • Mitigates the risk of hiring unsafe drivers
  • Instant access to facilitate quick hiring decisions

HireRight Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) Benefits

PSP records allow motor carriers to gather data about a driver's past highway crash and inspection history. Drivers who have records of frequent accidents and violations found during inspection may continue in this pattern. Knowing this information may help you avoid a bad hiring decision or enable you to put a proactive training program in place to combat future occurrences.

A study conducted by the FMCSA showed that carriers who use the PSP for hiring decisions showed an improvement in crash rates and also experienced a decrease in driver out-of-service rates.
