Checking DMV Records of TNC Drivers


Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) must ensure that their drivers’ Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records have no more than 3 points with the preceding 3 years, no “major violations” (reckless driving, hit and run, or driving with a suspended license conviction) within the preceding 3 years, and no driving under the influence conviction within the past 7 years.


TNCs are required to check the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records of their drivers prior to allowing them on the platform and quarterly thereafter. 


DMV’s Employer Pull Notice (EPN) program provides timely notice when any of the following are added to a driver’s record:

  • Convictions
  • Accidents
  • Failure to appear
  • Driver’s license suspension or revocation
  • Any other action taken against the driving privilege

The EPN program is only available to employees of charter party carriers.


TNCs must use the DMV’s Commercial Requester Account for all non-employee drivers.


If a TNC chooses to use a service provider, they may only use DMV authorized service provider.  DMV does not permit access to its records without a specific level of DMV-approved authorization.
