Driving Record Background Check Lookup Service | Crimcheck

Check Driving Record Report Service

A motor vehicle background report is used to check the job applicant’s driving history and criminal history check during the hiring process including traffic violations, suspensions, revocations, type of license granted, and restrictions on use. These types of background checks are highly recommended for all employees or job candidate that will be driving vehicles or operating equipment in the performance of the job applicants duties.
In some states, criminal convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not on criminal records and can only be revealed through a motor vehicle record or DMV check.

We will obtain the following information for your background screening:

  • Full Name
  • Current Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Driver’s License Issue Date
  • Driver’s License Expiration Date
  • Class (Operator, CDL, etc.)
  • Status (Valid, Suspended, Expired, etc.)
  • Restrictions
  • Endorsements
  • Accidents
  • Suspensions
  • Revocations
  • Violations
  • Points

All states have instant access to their driver record or motor vehicle background check records which means our clients can receive the Motor Vehicle Reports back as soon as they are entered. The only exceptions are Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon and Pennsylvania; these requests can have an overnight turnaround.
