Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLS) allows employers to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requirements by searching within the Commercial Driver’s License Information System. This searches for any prior licenses, current CDL and up to three prior licenses held by said individual. The Commercial Driving Records Search provides present jurisdictional state and driver’s license number; name; DOB; Social Security Number match; up to three previously held CDL numbers; and AKA information.
Mandated by the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act (CMVSA) of 1986, CDLIS supports the issuance of Commercial Driver Licenses (CDL) by the jurisdictions, and assists jurisdictions in meeting the goals of the basic tenet “that each driver, nationwide, have only one driver license and one record” through the cooperative exchange of commercial driver information between jurisdictions. All states are required to subscribe to this database. Turnaround Instant.
