Transportation Pre-Employment Background Screening FAQ

How long does it usually take to complete a corporate transportation background check?

Usually, both the employee criminal record check and the PSP verification are completed within 24 business hours.

What is the transportation pre-employment screening program?

The transportation pre-employment screening program (PSP) allows carriers, individual drivers and industry service providers to access commercial driver safety records from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). Records are available 24 hours a day via the PSP website.

What information does the pre-employment screening program (PSP) record contain?

A PSP record contains a driver’s most recent five years of crash data and the most recent three years of roadside inspection data from the FMCSA MCMIS database. MCMIS is a federal government database, which is different from the state data sources used to generate Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs).

A PSP record displays the motor carrier the driver was operating for at the time of the crash or inspection. It also shows the location and date that a crash or inspection occurred. Additional safety details about the crash such as injuries, fatalities, and tow-aways are included in the PSP record. Likewise, inspections show details like whether a vehicle was placed out of service. However, it doesn’t contain a score.

The PSP record shows a snapshot in time, based on the most recent MCMIS data within the PSP system. A new snapshot is uploaded approximately once a month. The current snapshot date is posted on the PSP home page. Learn more about the differences between PSP and MVR.

I had a roadside inspection very recently. Will this be available in my PSP record?

Data from the MCMIS is uploaded to the PSP system once a month so there’s a chance it may not be visible yet. In the bottom left corner of your PSP record, you can find the data snapshot date that’s effective at the time of the record request. If this date is earlier than the recent inspection, then you won’t see the inspection on the report.

Also, keep in mind that reporting times vary by state. If you do not see a crash or inspections that you expected to see, then you may consider accessing your PSP record again about a month after the snapshot date printed on your PSP record. If you want to know the current MCMIS data snapshot date prior to requesting a PSP record, it is posted on the PSP home page. It’s also possible to sign up to receive email notifications on snapshot updates via the GovDelivery system.


Because an employee has greater access to your resources, they are 15 times more likely than a non-employee to steal from you. This loss lessens your competitive edge; it also threatens to put you in the one-third of all business failures that happen due to employee theft.



Owners Jim & Leeanne Mills envisioned making business owners’ lives easier by taking Background Screening, Drug Screening, & Job Applicant Assessment burdens off their plates.

After 21 years of Naval service riding nuclear submarines, we traded in our Navy life and then we worked in the For-Profit Education Industry hiring employees, managers & professors. While hiring new employees our experience using the available Background Check Process proved to be a very time consuming, challenging, frustrating and difficult one.
