Motor vehicle / driver report information is obtained either directly through the state agency of where the driver’s license was issued, or through available court/traffic court information. Typical reported information may include: status, type/class of license, expiration date, violations and/or accidents (if any), restrictions (if any), and any additional endorsements.
CDLIS (Commercial D.L. Information System)
CDLIS allows employers and their agents to comply with FMCSA requirements (§ 391.21 – 391.27) by searching within the “Commercial Driver’s License Information System” for any prior licenses, current CDL, and up to three prior licenses held by said individual. This search helps by ensuring that commercial drivers do not hide or alter their driving histories. (This search does not include driving history.)
