Sharing Rides (And Cars) Can Be Safer

Know who’s sitting behind the wheel

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.

Legal expenses, property damage, medical and worse

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.

 
 

Instant iD Driver Checks keep you in the fast lane

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.

Many platforms also carry out background checks, looking into their users’ driving and credit histories and checking for criminal records.

Wanted: Safe Drivers

iD Driver Checks are automated, compliant motor vehicle record checks that identify people with high risk indicators.

Step 1: Order Checks

Order an iD Driver Check through our integrated web portal or API with a member’s name, birthdate, driver’s license number and state.

Step 2: DMV Returns Records

We pass the member’s license information to the relevant state DMV. The state DMV responds with the Motor Vehicle Records (MVR), typically in less than one day.

Step 3: Evaluate Results

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of records do iD Driver Checks search?

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

How long does it take to get the results?

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.

How do driving records help my business?

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.
