Driver Monitoring—When Annual MVRs Aren’t Enough

If you employ drivers, there’s a great chance you know all about motor vehicle record checks (MVRs). These annual reviews are the primary way that a lot of business keep tabs on their employees’ driving records to ensure that they aren’t placing any undue liabilities on the company while they’re at work on the road. The only trouble is, for a lot of companies, one annual review isn’t nearly enough.

Moving violations, citations, and even driver’s license revocations can happen any day for a wide variety of reasons. Relying on an employee to tell you when he’s gotten into trouble or waiting for an annual MVR check to be completed is a risky proposition. If one of your drivers gets into an accident on the job while his license is suspended, the police, victims, and insurance company will not care that he didn’t inform you that his license was suspended. Ignorance is no excuse, and they can hold you liable.

To help businesses avoid such situations, KRESS offers ongoing driver monitoring service. Because our screening experts have direct access to all state licensing agencies and checks for new violations, DUI/DWI convictions, invalid licenses, and approaching license or medical certification expirations, we can keep an eye on your employees’ records and inform you of any potential problems before they become costly nightmares.

We also make the process of monitoring your drivers easy and simple. MVRs can be challenging to read and decipher because each state has its own unique codes for violations, license status, and crashes. KRESS’s driver monitoring service decodes all violations on each state’s MVR, saving you time and aggravation.

Here are the top six ways driver monitoring makes employers’ lives easier:

  • Helps identify potentially high-risk drivers so they can take steps to reduce accidents
  • Reduces administrative time spent reviewing and interpreting records
  • Automates and simplifies the management of driver MVR data
  • Allows employers to set policy for annual MVR purchases
  • Assists in reducing likelihood of driver out-of-service orders
  • Enables motor carriers to take proactive steps to improve CSA score

All of KRESS’s driver monitor services are customized to fit our client’s needs. Are you ready to discuss how we can help eliminate risk from your motor pool? Contact our screening experts today to discuss how.
