Driver Qualification Files
There are a lot of steps in creating and then maintaining a compliant driver file. The FMCSA has data that proves the motor carriers are having a hard time maintaining these files. FMCSA/DOT driver file fines range from anywhere from $1,200 to $12,000 depending on the violation, making compliance with these regulations important. In the event of a crash or safety investigation, a compliant driver file is proof that you have ensured that only qualified drivers are operating your equipment.
