TREVOSE, PA – The CEI Group, Inc. (CEI) now accepts electronic signatures from drivers to authorize the Web-based retrieval of their motor vehicle records (MVRs). In order to comply with national consumer privacy laws and regulations, drivers must sign documents created by their state — or in Canada, their provincial government — to give permission for their employers to retrieve their motor vehicle report.

According to Vincent Brigidi, director of commercial operations, the new procedure further enhances CEI's online MVR authorization system. It eliminates the need for drivers to download copies of the documents and print, sign, and fax them to CEI. Instead, drivers can now enter their names and check a box as a replacement for a handwritten signature.

The new procedure is also part of CEI's "green fleet" initiatives, as it will save on the use of paper, electricity, and toner cartridges.
