Driver Qualification

Driver Qualification File Preparation and Maintenance

Under the U.S. DOT / FMCSR rules, all drivers of commercial motor vehicles must be fully qualified.  The drivers’ qualifications must be evidenced by a complete and proper Driver’s Qualification File (DQF).  When your drivers’ DQF’s are not properly maintained, your company is at risk for fines, penalties, safety rating downgrades, and in the event of an accident, costly litigation.

Subscribing to Fleet Safety’s Driver Qualification File support service ensures that each of your drivers has a fully compliant DQF.  Fleet Safety’s proprietary database system gives your staff the advantage of 24/7 access to your records through our web enabled secure database. No additional software is needed by your company.
