FMCSA expands pre-employment screening program

Posted on October 5, 2012

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) introduced an expanded version of its Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP), making it easier for more motor carrier companies, with the driver's consent, to access PSP records.

A PSP record includes three years of crash history and five years of roadside inspection history for a commercial driver. PSP is now available to eligible intrastate motor carriers and companies directly involved in the pre-employment screening and hiring of commercial drivers.

The program expansion means important driver safety data is now more easily available to companies that are responsible for hiring the drivers that get behind the wheels of many large trucks and buses.

FMCSA has also launched an iPhone application for PSP. Account holders can now securely access a PSP dashboard on an iPhone or iPad, and easily review a PSP record in a mobile-friendly format. The application is available for free download by searching ‘DOT PSP' in the Apple iTunes store.
