Transportation Employment Background Check
The REXUS team has decades of experience helping taxi service companies, trucking companies and mass transit authorities with their employment background screening needs. We understand the importance of hiring safe and reliable employees.

REXUS provides transportation employers with comprehensive employment background screening that empowers confident hiring decisions. Our account managers work with you to create a custom suite of background checks that incorporate both state and federal requirements as well as needs unique to your company.

Recommended Background Checks for Transportation Jobs:
Drug and Alcohol Testing
Drug and Alcohol Testing is performed at over 6000 collection sites. Urine testing, one of the most common screening methods, is an accurate and reliable way to detect casual drug use that occurred within the past 72 hours. A variety of test panels in addition to the federally mandated (SAMHSA/DOT) 5-drug panel are offered including a 5-panel hair follicle drug test, a 10-panel drug screen and expanded opiates panels for testing of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone.
Motor Vehicle Records Search
A Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) Search provide statewide driving records, including Commercial Driver’s License status (CDL) for at least 3 years, up to 7 years depending on the state. Motor Vehicle Records show driving history information including insurance lapses, license suspensions, revocations, accidents, and traffic violations. In some states, convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not found on the criminal court record but located on the MVR records.
DOT Employment Verification
The DOT Employment Verification includes contact with the supervisors provided by the applicant to determine an overview of job performance, interpersonal relations, and areas of expertise. Contact is also made with the Human Resources department to verify dates of employment, job title, salary, and eligibility for rehire.
FMCSA DOT Pre-employment Crash and Inspection Search
The FMCSA DOT Pre-employment Crash and Inspection Search includes a review of records maintained by the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These records provide the most recent 5 years of crash data and 3 years of roadside inspection data. This driver data is available to potential employers and operator-applicants to improve the quality of safety data and help employers make informed decisions when hiring commercial drivers.
Annual Driving Record Review
An Annual Driving Record Review of existing employees’ driving records ensures you maintain a safe workforce. These annual reports are sourced just like an applicant’s original Motor Vehicle Records Search and provide driving history information including insurance lapses, license suspensions, revocations, accidents, and traffic violations.
Nationwide Criminal Database Records Search
A Nationwide Criminal Database Records Search examines records covering all 50 States including the District of Columbia. Included are criminal records from statewide repositories and archives, department of corrections, local county information, traffic violations, administration of courts records, and the nationwide registered sex offender database. The results are cross-referenced for acccuracy with records found in a County Criminal Records Search and/or State Repository Criminal Search.
National Federal Criminal Records Search
A National Federal Criminal Records Search retrieves information directly from the Federal District Court repository and identifies criminal convictions on federal charges. This report includes active warrants and open cases listed in the court dockets. Federal courts can be searched by district, state or nationally.
County Criminal Record Search
A County Criminal Records Search provides felony and misdemeanor convictions from the last 7 years per FCRA regulations. When legally reportable, REXUS provides a minimum 10-year search. We work with researchers to access criminal records directly from the courts on both a county and state level. This methodology provides the most accurate and thorough criminal record review as opposed to the standard results provided through a compiled criminal database. In addition, when legally reportable, our report includes charges that were dismissed, not prosecuted, entered into pre-trial diversion programs or had suspended sentences.
Statewide Criminal Records Search
Statewide Criminal Records Searches are available in over forty states. Statewide record repositories are searched for felony and misdemeanors going back at least seven years. When legally reportable, REXUS provides a minimum 10-year search. We work with researchers to access criminal records directly from the courts on both a county and state level. This methodology provides the most accurate and thorough criminal record review as opposed to the standard results provided through a compiled criminal database. In addition, when legally reportable, our report includes charges that were dismissed, not prosecuted, entered into pre-trial diversion programs or had suspended sentences.
Sex Offender Registry Search
A Sex Offender Registry Search checks state and federal sex offender registries. The information reported includes full name of the offender, photographs of the offenders (when available), the offense, and the last known address of the offender.
