A truck driver’s DAC (Drive-A-Check) report highlights his employment history with other truck driving companies, as well as his motor vehicle record, or MVR. If negative information is in the DAC report, it can prevent the driver from gaining employment as a trucker. A trucker is entitled to one free copy of his DAC each year. DAC reports were originally issued by US Investigations Services, a commercial services business. In 2008, USIS merged with HireRight, a company that provides on-demand background checks. As of 2011, HireRight is responsible for issuing driver DAC reports
