Obtaining Your Own Employment, Driving, and Criminal History
If you are an owner-operator, motor carriers will evaulate your driving history, your employment history, and possible your criminal history prior to contract or hire. An accurate account of your history is one of your more important assets in the hiring process. You can obtain the same information that your potential employers will see, correct incorrect information, and use it as a tool to get the job you want.
