What is the 10 Year History Record Check for CDL holders?
Understanding the 10-Year History Record CheckThe 10-year Driver History Check became law in 1999 as part of the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act.
Similar to the kind of background criminal check you’d undergo for other occupations, the CDL background check applies to every CDL driver, no matter the CDL class.
It also doesn’t matter if you're applying for a commercial license for the first time, or if you're an established CDL driver looking to renew, upgrade, or transfer from one jurisdiction to another. By law, the DMV you're applying with must request a driving record from all other jurisdictions you've held a drivers license in over the last 10 years.
And If You “Fail” the Background Check?If, through the check, it's proven that any information has been falsified, the governing DMV can suspend, cancel, or revoke your CDL or pending application, or even disqualify you from operating a commercial vehicle for an extended period of time.
