The Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP), allows motor carriers and individual drivers to purchase their driving records, including serious safety violations.

Motor carriers may request PSP records only for the purpose of conducting pre-employment screening and only with the driver's written consent.  The PSP record only contains MCMIS inspection and crash information that is uploaded to MCMIS by FMCSA federal staff and state partners. 

How do you go about having false truck driver information removed from their PSP record?  Commercial truck drivers may obtain their PSP record either through the pre-employment screening program (PSP) or via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website. 

But which way is best?  And what assurance do drivers have that inaccurate violations will be removed?  Special guest, Rickey Gooch of the Legal Benefits Group joins us as we discuss the many issues raised by the CSA and DataQ System.
