What is it?
MVR stands for “Motor Vehicle Record.” An MVR check gives you a look at a person’s driving history and is a part of the background screening process. With an MVR you find out if an applicant or current employee has any traffic violations, including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, something that may not show up on a criminal records search.
This record search is known by many names:
- Driving records check
- Driver’s license verification
- MVR report
How does it work?
The Verified First team performs MVR searches for an individual based on the state that the driver's license is issued since MVR records are kept by the Department of Motor Vehicles in each state. MVRs are typically done only for the state where an applicant holds a current license.
Verified First uses the information returned from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to complete Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) searches. This information is then displayed in the report associated with the file.
Who needs this search?
Any employer who hires individuals that will be driving a company vehicle or will be driving as part of their duties within the organization.
Why run this search?
The MVR will give the employer a window into the candidate’s driving history. In addition to this information being necessary for insurance purposes, it also will give the employer a glimpse into the behaviors of those candidates. While frequent traffic violations might not be a reason to exclude employment from someone, they are often a harbinger of reliability as an employee.
