Corra Group is assisting its trucking and transportation clients by offering the five year [Motor Vehicle Driving Record for Texas CDL Drivers. The five year MVR will display both medical certification and a more comprehensive list of traffic violations that will assist trucking companies with their employment screening and hiring process.
“To be compliant, it is necessary for all commercial drivers of vehicles in interstate commerce with a maximum gross vehicle weight rating of over 10,000 pounds to obtain and maintain a valid Medical Examiner’s Certificate (ME Certificate),” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. Since the beginning of 2015, the Medical Examiner’s Certificate is displayed on the MVR for just about every state in the union.
“Texas is unique,” said Gustavson. “The DMV has both a three year and five year driving report. Many truckers used to run just the three year driving record as it would potentially raise fewer red flags by showing fewer traffic violations while still meeting with minimum Department of Transportation mandates. “But the much needed Medical Certificate is not featured in the Texas three year driving record search. It is only on the five year track. To accommodate our clients, Corra Group is moving all of its trucking companies over to the five year track and urging its new clients to do the same.”
