2. I authorize Tommy Ellis Trucking LLC (“Prospective Employer”) to access the FMCSA Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) system to seek information regarding my commercial driving safety record and information regarding my safety inspection history. I understand that I am consenting to the release of safety performance information including crash data from the previous five (5) years and inspection history from the previous three (3) years. I understand and acknowledge that this release of information may assist the Prospective Employer to make a determination regarding my suitability as an employee.
3. I further understand that neither the Prospective Employer nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information has the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. I understand I may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov/. If I am challenging crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data. I understand my request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.

Similarly, all inspections, with or without violations, appear on the PSP report. State citations associated with FMCSA violations that have been adjudicated by a court of law will also appear, and remain, on a PSP report.

I understand, also, that I am required to abide by all rules and regulations of the Company.
I understand that information I provide regarding current and/or previous employers may be used, and those employer(s) will be contacted, for the purpose of investigating my safety performance history as required by 49 CFR 391.23(d) and (e). I understand I have the right to:
a. Review information provided by previous employers;
b. Have errors in the information corrected by previous employers and for those previous employers to re-send the corrected information to the
prospective employer; and
c. Have a rebuttal statement attached to the alleged erroneous information, if the previous employer (s) and I cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.
