Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP)
The program helps carriers make more informed hiring decisions by providing secure, electronic access to a commercial driver’s five-year crash and three-year inspection history from the FMCSA Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). PSP records are available for commercial drivers and companies conducting pre-employment screening.
PSP records may be requested solely to conduct pre-screening of potential operators and only with the operator-applicant’s written consent. You cannot pull a PSP Report on a current employee.
According to the results of FMCSA’s recent study,
companies regularly using PSP have, on average:
A PSP record contains a driver’s most recent 5 years of crash data and the most recent 3 years of roadside inspection data from the FMCSA MCMIS database.
The record displays a snapshot in time, based on the most recent MCMIS data load to the PSP system. A new snapshot is uploaded approximately once per month.
How to Get Started:
Download and fill out the PSP Acknowledgment form.
Download and have each employee/driver fill out the PSP release form
Fax completed forms to: 407-650-2988
Each employee/driver/operator-applicant must provide written consent.

How Often is the PSP Data Updated?
Data from the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) is uploaded to the PSP system approximately once a month. This is a ‘MCMIS data snapshot’.
The date of the most recent MCMIS data snapshot is available on the bottom of your PSP report. Reporting times vary by state.
If you do not see a crash or inspection that you expected to see then you may consider accessing your PSP record again approximately a month after the snapshot date printed on your PSP report.
What is the Cost?
The cost for the each FMCSA PSP report is $10.00, plus your current TR Information Fee.
There is NO Enrollment fee.
That is a savings of $25-$100 a year that you would normally have to pay the FMCSA.
