Corra Group Assists With MVRs for Trucking and Transportation Industry

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corra Group is assisting the trucking and transportation industry in retrieving Motor Vehicle Driving Reports (MVR) and other Department of Transportation compliance related information. As more insurance companies are no longer running MVRs for their clients, it is incumbent upon the truckers to furnish their own motor vehicle driving records as well as drug tests and criminal background records.

Corra Group is able to supply driving records to the trucking and transportation industry for every state in the union, plus the District of Columbia, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Most driving records return instantly. Additionally, Corra Group is able to conduct criminal background checks and arrange for DOT compliant drug testing throughout the nation.

"The insurance companies once ran Motor Vehicle Driving Reports for their clients," said Gordon Basichis, Co-Founder of Corra Group. "But that time has all but ended. Now the insurance companies are turning that responsibility back to trucking companies. Among other things, the insurance companies are citing the FCRA regulations (Fair Credit Reporting Act) as the reason.

"Clearly, in an economy where cost cutting is mandated by nearly every corporation, the rising cost of State Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) fees is a mitigating factor. Add to the mix the cost of labor to run the MVRs and it is easy to see why insurance companies may want to drop this accommodation.

"We've been told by some clients that certain insurance companies that are still willing to run the driving records are charging more for the MVR service than could be contracting through Corra Group or other private background checking services," added Basichis. "That was a consideration for many new trucking clients."

Truckers, by law, must comply with Department of Transportation regulations. Those who fail to comply can lose their business license. Some companies are scrambling to find a service that can provide them with MVRs as well as criminal background reports, and DOT drug testing capability.

Corra Group offers a state-of-the-art, user friendly system. Once their account is established, new clients can typically learn to order their driving reports in 15 minutes or less.
