The Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) offers background screeners instant online access to 5 years of crash data and 3 years of inspection and violation histories for commerical drivers. Congress mandated that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) make this data electronically available for pre-employment screening purposes only.
PSP helps trucking and bus companies make better informed hiring decisions so that the safest drivers are behind the wheels of commercial vehicles.
A study released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in 2013 found that carriers who used PSP decreased their crash rates by 8%, and driver out-of-service rates by 17%, on average. PSP records are updated monthly, the service is accessible 24×7 via TazWorks’ InstaScreen™ platform.
PSP is managed by NIC Federal, LLC on behalf of FMCSA.
