FMCSA offers new free service to alert truck drivers to changes in PSP record

Published:

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is now offering a free Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) monitoring service that will let drivers know of any changes made to their safety record.

The FMCSA recently announced that drivers only can sign up for an optional, free monitoring service that will send an email to a driver any time that their PSP record changes.

According to FMCSA, to enroll in the service, drivers will need to log into PSP and go to the Driver Dashboard, then click on Enroll in PSP Monitoring. You can click this link to log into PSP.

The PSP report is a safety record maintained by the FMCSA that includes a truck driver’s 5-year crash and 3-year roadside inspection history. The FMCSA says the PSP is designed to “assist the motor carrier industry in assessing individual operators’ crash and serious safety violation history as a pre-employment condition.”

A PSP record displays the motor carrier for which the driver was operating for at the time of the crash or inspection. It also shows the location and date that a crash or inspection occurred. Additional safety details about crashes such as injuries, fatalities, and towaways are included in a PSP record. Likewise, inspections show details like whether a vehicle was placed out of service.

If you would like to request your PSP record, you can click here to get started. There is a $10 charge to obtain your PSP record from the FMCSA.

You can check out the sample PSP report below for a better idea of the information that the report contains.
