On a personal note, the author of this section has a close family relative that used to work for an auto company in Detroit. The downfall of the area's auto industry is one that we watched with great sadness; its current resurgence is awesome - and neccesary for the country and the resilient Michigan economy.

Michigan is populated with very hard-working, family-oriented employees. It feautes and an outstanding small business culture. HireSafe has been consistently pleased to work and talk with companies from the Mid-West and would love to make new partnerships in the great state of Michigan.

Integrity is not just a buzz word around here. We have an A+ rating with the better business bureau and 16 years of experience peforming compliant, professional background checks around the country.

Motor Vehicle Record Search Requirements by the State of Michigan

Motor Vehicle Report is sometimes referred to as a MVR, MVR Report, MVR Search, MVR Check, a Driver's License Verification, a Driving Records search, or a DMV search. The Michigan Motor Vehicle Report checks the driving record of a potential employee and verifies that an applicant has the driver's license claimed. It may provide information regarding irresponsible behavior, including whether there is a history of substance abuse, repeated traffic violations, failures to appear, and unpaid fines

Checking the driving record of current and prospective employees by using HireSafe’s search of Michigan DMV records is crucial to the success of your businesses. A search the Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles records will gather trustworthy information which may pertain to areas of public safety, human resources and other business permissible purposes.

Michigan Departments of Motor Vehicles (DMV’s) maintain and provide driving records in one way or another. Michigan Motor Vehicle Records (MVR’s) report the applicants’ statewide driving records, including Commercial Driver's License status (CDL) for at least 3 years, oftentimes up to 7 years. It is logical to screen Michigan motor vehicle records for any employment position requiring driving, such as trucking, transportation, delivery, DOT compliance or any use of company vehicles. However the MVR provides additional valuable insight into the character of the applicant regardless of the position being filled. Most importantly, the Michigan MVR is the only source for a verified date-of-birth which is critical for an accurate criminal record search. Michigan County court criminal records are filled by name and date-of-birth, not by SSN! Motor Vehicle Reports provide a wealth of personal data that can be used for cross-reference, and criminal offenses pertaining to motor vehicles which may not be revealed by other criminal checks.

Michigan driving record (MI)

You must meet certain requirements before a Michigan driver’s license can be issued. If you are age 18 or older, you are not required to take driver education, although it is strongly recommended.

If you are applying for your first Michigan driver’s license, you will need to present proof of a valid Social Security number or a letter of ineligibility from the Social Security Administration, U.S. citizenship or legal presence, identity, and Michigan residency.

You will not be issued a license if you have never been licensed in Michigan, any other state or country, and you have two or more convictions for moving violations on your driving record within the three years before the date you apply. To be eligible to reapply, you must wait until you have no more than one conviction on your driving record within the three years before the date you reapply. Records are available for 7 years from conviction date; unless there is an alcohol or controlled substance conviction, which will remain on record for 10 years. Accidents are reported on the record only if the driver is cited. It takes 2 weeks before new records are available for inquiry.
