Driver’s License Record Searches: What Can They Tell Us?

When you think of conducting background checks into a job candidate’s history, you might first think of work-specific factors, such as employment history, education, and related information. But this alone cannot give you a full picture of who the person you are planning on hiring is. One often-overlooked but nevertheless vital piece of information to consider is an applicant’s driver’s license record. What will you learn from this type of record search? Read on to find out more.

Do Driver’s License Record Searches Matter in the Hiring Process?

It is not a hard and fast rule that a responsible driver makes for a responsible employee, but it does indicate what kind of personality or traits an applicant has overall. Driver’s license record searches bring up information regarding an individual’s driving history, including infractions. The Motor Vehicle Association of a given state will have on file all of the information that you need and can access through background checks conducted by AIR Pre-Hire. You will be able to see whether or not an applicant’s license is valid and current (expired licenses will show up in the database), whether the applicant has ever had their license suspended or revoked, and whether they have any major traffic violations on record, such as a DUI or DWI. These kinds of facts can help shape your conception of an applicant and decide whether or not they are a good fit for your company. If the position you are looking to fill requires employees to drive or operate vehicles, this information is that much more vital to learn beforehand! An employee driving during the course of their employment should have their license checked every year, as a matter of accuracy.
