Minimum compliance in preparing a DQ file requires an exacting and time consuming process to gather and document all of the required information used in the hiring decision. The DQ Prep service provides all of the required document preparation leaving you with just the evaluation and hiring decision. This service will give you the information that can improve the quality of drivers you hire and insure your files will pass a DOT audit.
Here is how we can help!
For Carriers: Avoid hiring a problem! Find out a driver candidates roadside violation history before you make the hire by accessing the DOT’s Pre-employment Screening Program report. OTA has partnered with a registered third party provider for these reports that will save you the time and the expense of establishing, accessing, record keeping and renewing your own account.
Simply email the drivers signed consent form and within 24 hours you will receive the DOT PSP report outlining DOT violation data collected over the past 3 years for that driver.
For Drivers: Your eligibility to get a job as a driver can be directly influenced by the DOT PSP report. It is recommended that every driver verify the accuracy of their PSP report data at least twice per year. Inaccuracies should be challenged through the DOT DataQ process to keep your record clean. The PSP report can be obtained on an “as requested” basis or on a set schedule so that you can routinely view your data.
The Oregon MVR is a driving record containing information about a drivers driving history. The MVR shows convictions by an Oregon court, which typically remain on record for 3-5 years. An MVR will also include data for any type of vehicle, including passenger cars, motorcycles, commercial trucks, and buses.
The FMCSA requires that a carrier obtain and review a driver candidates MVR at the time of hire. To ensure the employer remains aware of a commercial drivers driving record, an annual review of the driver is also required and must include an updated MVR. Obtaining an MVR can only be done with the drivers written permission and processed directly with the State or through a registered state agent.
The OTA is providing its Members Oregon MVR Reports through a state registered agent, Glostone Trucking Solutions. Due to strict privacy laws surrounding MVR’s, completed reports will be sent to the Member directly from the agent. An Oregon MVR is generally processed and returned by the State within 3 business days
