Va. DMV to Expand Commercial Driver Offense Alerts

June 7, 2010

Virginia is expanding a voluntary program that notifies employers of traffic offenses that could disqualify their drivers from holding a commercial license.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that participating employers will be able to request a wider range of information about their drivers. The information will be provided by e-mail instead of by letter.

The expanded program will begin later this year.

More than 43,000 entities employ drivers who have commercial licenses or drive small commercial vehicles in Virginia. But only about 645 participate in the current program.

Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb says the agency wants to get more employers to participate.
