By providing secure, immediate, electronic access to a commercial driver’s safety history, more informed hiring decisions are made—improving the safety of commercial motor vehicles and saving lives on America’s roadways. Today, PSP makes accessing commercial driver history records convenient for prospective employers, commercial drivers, and background screening companies.



PSP is delivered at no cost to FMCSA because PSP is entirely self-funded by fees paid by users of the service. FMCSA has no financial obligations to develop, support, maintain, or promote the program. FMCSA pays nothing for full operational support and ongoing maintenance and enhancement of PSP. Since contract start, the PSP user base has increased by 300% and website traffic has increased by 20% each year. 



A recent FMCSA study found that carriers using PSP have decreased, on average, both their crash rates and the instances of drivers placed out-of-service due to safety violations. According to the findings, “carriers questioned believe that using PSP will help them hire the best drivers available and will improve their overall safety ratings."


“PSP offers a simple and easy-to-use solution for obtaining commercial driver crash and inspection histories – valuable information that is integral in the driver hiring process.”
