The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has specific requirements that motor carriers must follow in regards to qualifying their drivers prior to allowing them to operate a commercial motor vehicle. These regulations cover areas such as what should be included in a driver application, previous employer background investigations, medical qualification requirements, and how the files must be maintained.

This service includes the following but can be adjusted to your company's specific needs.
