When you are brand new in the industry you have a lot to prove to potential employers. You have to prove to the employer that you have the skills to drive the truck. You have to prove to the company’s insurance company that you are a safe individual. You also have to prove to your potential employers that you are who you say you are. That is a lot for a new person to have to worry about when you are just learning about the industry and trying to find your stride.
Many employers are not relying on applicants to serve the required documents due to falsification of records and other situations. Insurance companies and many employers are now relying on third party verification systems to ensure information is accurate and truthful.
DriverVerified has a system that is a little different in that it allows the driver to manage and know what information is listed and available. Drivers create a profile for free online and when applying at a company the employer can pull a report that has all the information required. Information can be searched and drivers can even add additional information such as awards and certificates. This helps verify employment history and much more. Watch the video below to learn more.
