Barry, the founder of DQM Connect, offers invaluable insights into the best practices for DOT driver applications. To guarantee adherence to Title 49 391.21, it is crucial to ensure that the driver’s application is signed and branded by the motor carrier. Failing to include driver profile information and signatures on the application can lead to compliance concerns, making it imperative to avoid such oversights. Furthermore, it is highly recommended that employers evaluate a driver’s experience and employment history to ensure that they can meet the required mileage and account for any gaps in their ten-year employment history. By implementing these practices, employers can expedite the onboarding process of drivers while ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
