Employers may check driver's licenses to ascertain various issues regarding the employee or candidate. If the driver's license was suspended, this may form a basis of dismissal for jobs requiring driving responsibilities.
Apart from employers checking for driver's license histories, insurance companies may also check driver license histories to determine the rates at which an individual receives coverage. A person with bad records is likely to get higher rates when insured. Courts and attorneys are also some of the parties that may use driver license records for various purposes, which is why it is prudent to drive safely and obey all traffic rules.
