ST. PETERSBURG, FL— First Advantage Corp., a global risk mitigation and business solutions provider, announced its Transportation Services division has introduced a first-of-a-kind Web-based service designed to streamline the ordering of driving records (MVRs) by businesses employing commercial drivers. The nationwide service, named CDLIS to MVR, efficiently provides license and driving records from all states in which a driver has held a commercial driver license (CDL) — saving employers the time required to uncover and gather this information from multiple sources.

With a single order entry, CDLIS to MVR searches the Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS), a national database of current and previous CDLs held by drivers. The report returns information about the current license and up to two previously held licenses. CDLIS to MVR then automatically places orders to those states where CDLs are indicated to retrieve the most current driving record. The resulting report provides employers with more thorough information to assist them in mitigating corporate risk while complying with government regulations.

CDLIS to MVR is the latest addition to First Advantage’s growing platform of products and services designed by First Advantage to ease the increasingly complex regulatory requirements on the trucking industry by the Department of Transportation and other agencies. Other services include the CompuNet Credit Report, employment history verifications, standard CDLIS and motor vehicle records checks, criminal background checks, drug and alcohol testing and programs, driver qualification programs, and fleet management.
