What is it?
A Commercial Drivers License Insurance Search (CDLIS) is a search conducted in a database maintained by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators to ensure single commercial license issuance nationwide.
CDLIS was established under the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act (CMVSA) of 1986 and is based on Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations in 49 CFR 383 and 384.
How does it work?
The search conducted by Verified First goes through the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) – a nationwide computer system that helps to ensure that each commercial driver has only one driver license and one complete driver record.
Verified First uses the information returned from the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) to complete Commercial Driver’s License 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 commercial vehicle or will be driving commercial vehicles as part of their duties within the organization.
Why run this search:
The MVR will give the employer a window into the candidate’s commercial 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 someone from employment, they are an indicator of safe driving practices and often a harbinger of reliability as an employee.
