Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) Search

Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) offer driving history information regarding insurance lapses, license suspensions, revocations, accidents, traffic violations, and unpaid, or unanswered summons. It is recommended to run a Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) search on applicants who would be in a position driving a company provided vehicle, chauffeuring, entertaining clients, or operating machinery. Additionally, certain state convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not listed on criminal court records, heightening the importance of a Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) check.
