PSP was designed to assist the motor carrier industry in assessing individual operators’ crash and serious safety violation history as a preemployment condition. A carrier will pay $10 for each requested driver history. An annual subscription fee of $100 also applies. Carriers with fewer than 100 power units qualify for a discounted annual fee of $25 per year. Individuals can request a personal driving history for a fee of $10. No subscription is necessary for individual drivers. The program is voluntary. It is not part of CSA. Motor carriers may request, through a third-party provider, NIC Technologies, driver information for the purpose of pre-employment screening. The driver must provide written consent. Individual drivers may request their own driver information record at any time. The information will be retrieved from the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). MCMIS electronic profiles will contain 5 years of crash data and 3 years of inspection data, however, MCMIS will not include conviction data.
