Truth About Trucking “LIVE” broadcast the Truckers DAC Report show this evening.  Truth About Trucking is preparing to submit a report to the U.S. Congress, requesting an investigation into the DAC Services and those trucking companies who report false information about drivers.  We are asking for drivers’ help . . . if you have been a victim of false DAC reports, email your experience to : allen@truthabouttrucking.com

Your letters will be included with the report that we will submit to Congress.  “Where there are many voices … there can be change.” 

You are entitled to a free copy of your DAC report, once per year.  Additional copies are $9.50 each.  Submit your request by mail, including a copy of your SSN card and driver license to :

USIS Commercial Services Division

4500 South 129th East Avenue

Suite 200

Tulsa, Oklahoma 74134-5885

Or you can call them at :    1-800-381-0645

It is widely noted that many trucking companies use the DAC services as a way to “get back” at drivers.  This is NOT what the services were set up to do.  We can sit back and do nothing . . . or we can work to bring about reform.  Email me your experiences with DAC and the trucking companies who have abused this service – allen@truthabouttrucking.com  –  and they will be enclosed with the report we will submit to Congress.

Here, you can listen to tonight’s show – Truckers Dac Report –

Join truthabouttrucking.com in raising the standards of the trucking industry.  Submit your DAC experiences……

Thanks,

    to all new drivers, once you have applied for a job to a trucking company you have a dac report, as Allen stated keep current on your report, because USIS reports what it finds on public record and that may not always be accurate also.

    Mr.Harrell I’m so glad I found this site I have been through so much since I started driving , I drove for 3 major companies that did not work out after leaving the last one no one will touch me. I have not gotten any tickets or had any accidents or tested positive for drugs thanks for the info this may be the problem I got into it with my D.M . I will get back with you once I get my DAC, THX

    Thanks for the post, Keith. For a D.M. to place something negative on a drivers’ DAC for no reason other than spite, is totally against the law. Read comments from an Attorney and former Judge at our post : http://tinyurl.com/dnbk45
