If you are hiring someone to operate a motor vehicle for your business, make sure you know what kind of driver your prospective new employee is. States maintain detailed records of the driving infractions committed by each driver, although the extent of the records available varies from state to state. While a clean record is no assurance that an individual is a good driver, it is a bit of objective information that you shouldn't overlook.
The attached file contains a sample letter to be used to obtain driving records from a state's department of motor vehicles. Bear in mind that the information is also of interest when hiring for a position that doesn't involve driving but does include the operation of a forklift truck or other heavy, mobile equipment.
The file is in rich text format (RTF) that is suitable for use with most word processing programs used in the Windows environment.
