Motor Vehicles: MVR Checks

Annual MVR checks should conducted for all employees who operate company fleet.

  • Companies should have employees or prospective employees sign releases allowing the organization to run the MVR checks. These releases should be approvedby legal counsel.
  • Many firms are available to
    accomplish these checks including
    insurance agencies.
  • The Montana Motor Vehicle Division can help you including an online service that you may use.
  • When running MVR checks, consider a national search rather than one limited to the county or state in which the employee resides or where the company is domiciled.
  • Once you have all of the MVRs you need to deal with the problem driver(s). You will need a scoring system in place. Score the number and type of vehicular accidents or traffic law violations. Convictions for driving while intoxicated of impaired should cause a suspension of driving privileges.
