Everyone thinks they’re a safe driver, yet rarely do we take someone else’s word for it. What do you really know about the person using your carpool, ridesharing or rental platform? Admitting and maintaining reliable, safe drivers should not be left to chance.
Beyond risks to your business’s reputation and finances, members with a history of poor driving and violations could put the personal safety of your members at risk.
Use Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) to identify those members with a higher risk profile, evaluate driving and violation history and make fair, reasonable decisions that keep your members and your business safe.

Information on a members driver’s license, accident history, moving violations, license class, special endorsements, revocations, suspensions and any restrictions are returned to the portal or through the API.
iD Driver Checks use Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) from the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) databases. These records contain information such as accident history, moving violations, license class, special endorsements, revocations, suspensions and any restrictions
Every state will have different timing and resource constraints. But, we find that results are available typically within one day. In rare cases, results can be delayed due to state closures, holidays, or technical issues by a specific state DMV.
Driving records can help you assess whether the members who are using your platform to drive, carpool, or rent vehicles are safe drivers. This protects not only your vehicles, but the people interacting on the platform or in person. Motor vehicle crashes create real liabilities and can cost companies billions annually in legal expenses, property damage, medical expenses, and most importantly, lost lives.
Therefore, we recommend checking the driving record and driving history of any applicant or member who uses your services to drive a vehicle, carpooling, car sharing, or renting a vehicle. This will help ensure that these members are safe drivers on your platform, hence protecting your business and reducing risk.
