The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration considers the driver hiring process to be a critical element in building and maintaining a safe carrier operation. An extensive review of a candidates driving history can weed out unsafe drivers from ever driving for your company or pin point areas where further training could correct bad driving habits before they negatively impact your company.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations outline minimum requirements and documentation for hiring a driver. This process and compilation of documents is called the Driver Qualification (DQ) file.
Minimum compliance in preparing a DQ file requires an exacting and time consuming process to gather and document all of the required information which is used in the hiring decision. Our service provides all of the required document preparation and research leaving you with just the evaluation and hiring decision. Our DQ file preparation service will give you the information that can improve the quality of drivers you hire and insure your files will pass a DOT audit.

It’s important to note that from the regulatory side, failure to institute and maintain these very basic DQ files can lead to DOT fines, CSA violations, unsatisfactory Safety Rating and even Out of Service Orders. From a risk management perspective, failure can place your company at extreme financial risk in any accident litigation.
