Driving records are available for a search term of three years in all 50 states. Record information is accessed directly from the requested state’s department of motor vehicles or department of revenue. Reported information includes infractions, disciplinary actions, issue date, expiration date, status, and restrictions. Driving records may be a good indicator of alcohol or substance abuse, or expose a pattern of ignoring safety rules and procedures. In accordance with the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act, NAS extracts all identifying information, such as date of birth and address from the driving history report. Driving history searches are recommended on all employment positions that require driving, but they also can serve as a beneficial tool in determining an applicant’s overall responsibility.
Credit reports are ideal for determining if an individual is suitable for positions dealing directly with company funds or positions that have accesses to confidential information, such as credit card numbers or are issued a company expense account credit card. NAS’s credit history profile will confirm the applicant’s name, Social Security Number, as well as current and former addresses. Also included are the number of accounts opened, the number of accounts in both good and negative credit status, the applicant’s high credit range, payment history, opening balance or credit limit, current balance owed and/or past due, charge off, repossession and extended debt. The Credit History may also provide current and past employers, positions with employers, wages and verification of transportation. Public record information includes garnishments, bankruptcies, collection actions, judgments, satisfied judgments and civil suit information. A signed authorization is required. **Site inspection and end-user agreement required.
SOCIAL SECURITY TRACE
Social Security number trace is a compilation of an applicant’s reported addresses. This information is formulated from a combination of various sources (excluding the social security administration) to establish an association between the input name and social security number. Information is obtained from more than 300 sources, including FedEx records, credit bureaus, postal service records and subscription records. It also identifies current and prior addresses as well as other names associated with the input social security number. This can be a good guide as to where to conduct a criminal record search. This is not an FCRA product and should not be used to take Adverse Action.
