About the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP)
The Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) is a U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program. PSP helps motor carriers make more informed hiring decisions by
providing secure, electronic access to a commercial driver’s five year crash and three year inspection history.
Background screening companies may access the data on behalf of the employer during the hiring process.
In the past year PSP has undergone changes. This presentation will inform the audience of program
enhancements including a new service called PSP Monitoring; as well as the inclusion of not preventable crash
data in PSP records.
Distinct Elements Include:
- Informed Decision Making
- Improved Roadway Safety
- Expanded Access to Data
- Modernized Technology Approach
- Focused Customer Care
- Recognized Success
