Mandatory Driving Record Monitoring Program ​

The DMV provides driving records of public school bus drivers as well as public, private, and commercial driving school instructors.  Upon conviction of Reckless Driving, DUI, or license suspensions, the DMV notifies employers, schools, and licensing authorities.  Your employer will also be notified if you are a driving instructor and accumulate more than 6 demerit points.

​Driver Alert Voluntary Record Monitoring  Program

​This program allows employers to be immediately informed when the driving records of employees change, allowing for quicker discovery of DUI or other convictions or suspensions that may render employees ineligible to drive.
