DAC report, Dak, DAQ - I've seen it spelled many different ways and I've heard it called by these names and other names that may have been spoken (yelled actually) in French.
Regardless how it's spelled or what it is known as, the "DAC Report" is employment performance information sent by member motor carriers to HireRight, formerly called USIS, formerly called DAC Services ssn dob database. Trucking companies send these details when a driver's employment/contract ends.
Professional drivers should understand the above mentioned paragraph-many drivers don't.
1. The info on the DAC report is primarily employment information (although driving crashes/incidents and past driving license information can be listed). You won't see speeding tickets, driving license suspensions, criminal record information or credit history on a "DAC Report." MVRs, Criminal Record Histories and Credit Reports are reports that could be delivered by DAC-but they're not DAC Reports.
2. Not absolutely all companies participate in DAC. It is an exclusive company, not just a government agency or contractor and usage of DAC by employers is voluntary. Therefore, you will find tens of countless driving employments not stored by DAC. This is often good when you yourself have an especially bad reference, or it could be bad news when you yourself have good experience and want a possible employer to see it quickly so you can head to work faster.
3. DAC reports are not a "running tally" of employment-member trucking companies will simply submit information to DAC upon termination of employment. Let's say you have been working for 3 years for an employer that is a member of DAC. Still employed, you decide to find another job. Your 3 years'of experience won't show up on the DAC Report for potential employers to see.
The DAC Report does contain the next types of information:
• Identification of Driver. (Name, SSN, DOB)
• Identification of Contributing company (Address and phone number) and date contributed
• Period of Service (Month/year)
• License Number
• Eligibility for rehire
• Reason for leaving (e.g., driver quit or discharge, etc.)
• Status (e.g., owner operator, company driver, etc.)
• Driver Experience (e.g., single driver, team, etc.)
• Equipment Operated (e.g., reefer, dry box, etc)
• Loads Hauled (e.g., general commodity, etc)
• Work Record (e.g., satisfactory, cargo loss, etc.)
A separate portion of the report contains accident/incident information. It is divided into DOT recordable and non-DOT recordable information. DOT recordable records contributed by employers will contain accident details as stored in the accident register. Non-DOT recordable accidents may contain details (date, short description, etc) if given by the past employer.
It is likewise indicated whether this kind of company stored DOT drug and alcohol testing information with USIS. If the info is stored, the potential employer must send a written release to USIS to get the particular drug and alcohol results.
The purpose of all this for the professional driver is no academic exercise. When you will need a job, sooner is better--and it's vital that you understand what potential employers will see and the sources of the information. You need to examine all the info a possible employer will see. You need to examine it for accuracy and give yourself a while for correction if needed. To do that, you need to know the foundation of the info and what it might contain.
