By submitting an application you certify that you personally completed such application and that all of the information is true and correct. Your submission of an application constitutes:
- your request and authorization for each of the potential employers and their agents and contractors that receive your application (collectively, the “Carrier Companies”) to cause to be conducted, at any time, an investigation of your background for employment purposes, which may include, but is not limited to, any information relating to your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living, criminal history, past work experience, educational background, alcohol or drug test results (including failure to submit to an alcohol or drug test) or any other information about you which may reflect upon your potential for employment, as gathered from any individual, organization, entity, agency, or other source which may have knowledge concerning any such items of information; and

As part of consideration of your application, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires the Carrier Companies to investigate your employment background. As part of this investigation, one or more Carrier Companies may obtain consumer reports about you from consumer reporting agencies HireRight/DAC, as well as obtaining information about your driving record from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and/or the Pre-employment Screening Program (PSP). Any decision that a Carrier Company may make not to hire you based on information contained in your consumer reports will be such company’s decision alone. HireRight/DAC does not make any decisions concerning your employment with any Carrier Company and will not know the specific reasons why they may decide not to hire you. In the event you are not hired based on information contained in your consumer reports, the companies themselves will tell you. We also advise you of your right to obtain a free copy of the consumer report from HireRight/DAC and your right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of your report. Your consent for any Carrier Company to obtain the report from HireRight/DAC is required. Although you have a right to withhold your consent, the Carrier Companies will not consider your application if you withhold your consent.
By submitting your application, you authorize each of the Carrier Companies and their agents or contractors to obtain one or more reports regarding your driving and safety inspection history from the FMCSA. Any decision that any Carrier Company may make not to hire you based on information contained in your FMCSA reports will be its decision alone. By submitting your application, you also:
- authorize each Carrier Company and their agents or contractors to access the FMCSA PSP system to seek information regarding your commercial driving safety record and information regarding your safety inspection history;
- acknowledge that you understand that you are consenting to the release of safety performance information including crash data from the previous five (5) years and inspection history from the previous three (3) years;
- acknowledge that you understand that this release of information may assist Carrier Companies in making a determination regarding your suitability as an employee; and
- acknowledge that you understand that neither the Carrier Companies nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information have the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. You may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov. If you are challenging crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data and your request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.
