The Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) is a new, national-level program designed to offer motor carriers and commercial drivers electronic access to drivers’ records from the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). A PSP record contains a driver’s crash and inspection history to help motor carriers make more informed hiring decisions. The PSP allows motor carrier employers to take the crash and inspection history of drivers into account when deciding on hiring new employees, and also offers drivers the option to view their personal PSP record at any time. Join the Analysis Division’s Michael Johnsen for an overview of the PSP program, and for demonstrations of both the motor carrier and commercial driver online services.
The Pre-Employment Screening Program, required by Congress through the latest transportation reauthorization bill, SAFETEA-LU, is voluntary, and a motor carrier must obtain the driver’s written consent prior to requesting a driver’s record. PSP data is handled according to all applicable laws and regulations.
