It is not a requirement for a trucking company to check your DAC report when hiring, but most of them do. Therefore, if you want to have the best job possibilities available to you, it’s important that you know what’s on your report and do everything you can to have any false or inaccurate information corrected. The information filed stays on your report for 7 years and is updated every year, so you should check it at least once a year to make sure everything is correct. You are entitled to one free report each year by submitting an application to the company that handles DAC records. If you are requesting an additional copy within the same year that you received your free one, you will be charged a small fee for the extra copy.
