DOT Annual MVR Requirements Explained
Mariah Barr
2 mins read

Every 12 months, employers must obtain an updated Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) for each CDL driver to ensure they are qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle.

This MVR check will show a record of all moving violations, accidents, and license suspensions and revocations. During this process, you must consider the following:

  • Did the driver violate any hazardous materials regulations?
  • Did the driver violate any motor vehicle laws that show a general disregard for public safety? This may include drug and alcohol violations, speeding, or reckless driving.

This annual MVR must be placed in the driver qualification file along with a note showing the name of the person who performed the annual review and the date the review occurred.

Annual List of Driving Violations Eliminated by FMCSA

According to an FMCSA final ruling passed on May 9, 2022, CDL drivers are no longer required to submit an annual list of moving violations to their employer. 

Employers are still required to retain the Record of Violations documents collected before May 9, 2022, and keep them for three years from the original document date, unless otherwise clarified by FMCSA.
