Good Egg's Approach to MVR Checks and MVR Monitoring

Motor vehicle accidents cost employers $60 billion annually due to medical care, legal bills, property damage, and lost productivity. The costs don't end there, either. After an accident, expect price hikes in things like insurance and workers' compensation. Not to mention the brand damage that can plague a company forever. Luckily, MVR checks and continuous MVR monitoring can help mitigate these risks.

MVR Checks

If you have employees driving for your company, you likely already conduct a pre-employment MVR check and an annual MVR review for each driver (and if you're a DOT-regulated business, you're required to run annual checks).

An MVR check is a report of a person's driving history. The MVR record includes information, such as license expiration, status, license class, endorsements, restrictions, traffic violations, accidents, vehicular crimes, suspensions—even unpaid parking tickets and, in some states, unpaid child support.

Continuous MVR Monitoring

Ongoing MVR monitoring of your drivers' motor vehicle records can help mitigate risks and liabilities as well. You'll be alerted when something happens with their driving records, which will allow you and your team to address concerns and put corrective action plans into place (if needed).

MVR monitoring identifies any changes to an active driver’s record as these changes occur. This can include citations, suspensions, expirations, revocations, and any other change to the person's MVR.

Yes, accidents do (and will) happen. But with MVR monitoring, you can take proactive measures rather than operate in "reactive" mode after something happens.

Frequently Asked Question about MVR Checks

How far back does a motor vehicle report go?

This varies by state. Most states fall within a 3- to 7-year lookback period (three years is the most common). There's no national database for searching drivers' records—we obtain MVR reports through a state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or its equivalent agency.
