Driver safety is an important topic for companies who have employees who drive for the company in any capacity. Motor Vehicle Records should be obtained on all drivers prior to employment and conducted on an as-needed basis thereafter. Criteria that may indicate an unacceptable record include:
- Three or more moving violations in a year, including any ticket, charge, or other law enforcement proceeding relating to these.
- Three or more accidents within a year in which the driver is determined to be the primary cause of the accident through speeding, inattention, etc.
- Driving while impaired.
- Invalid license.
Nextep's Policy Guide found in the Resource Library on WebStep includes these and other standards for driver safety. If your company needs to update your Employee Handbook or is interested in performing Motor Vehicle Record searches on prospective or existing employees, contact Nextep's Human Resources Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
