Department of Transportation – DOT Background Checks

Yielding to Safe Drivers Doesn’t Have to Slow You Down

Speed through your organization’s and DOT’s background screening processes with JDP. We’ll help you pick out the safe drivers from those who you wouldn’t want behind the wheel of one of your trucks. When you’re able to learn everything about your candidates, from criminal and driving records to substance use and past workers’ compensation claims, you won’t have to make any detours to deal with employee roadblocks.

A Driving Force in Road Safety

When you violate Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, your company could be fined or even suspended. JDP can help you meet compliance with ease.

Our DOT background check meets all regulatory requirements. We go the extra mile to find information that a standard background check would skip, like answers to FMCSA’s driving and drug & alcohol questions.

We review your candidates’ motor vehicle records, including license information from CDLIS, to make sure they’re qualified to drive. We even look at MCMIS data to find your candidate’s crash and inspection histories. Combined with our fast and easy drug testing services, including the DOT’s 5-drug panel, you’ll know in no time whether a candidate is safe to get behind the wheel.
