To request Compliance, Safety and Accountability score information, go to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website and request a U.S. DOT number and PIN number, which is required to gain access. CSA score information includes safety and inspection data for all drivers, as of 2015.

CSA scores produced by the Safety Management System are often confused with Pre-Employment Screening Program reports, which you can access by going to the Pre-Employment Screening Program page at the FMCSA website. PSP reports contain five years' worth of individual truck driver data compiled by the Motor Carrier Management Information System, and include information about crashes and roadside inspections. PSP reports do not include information concerning driving infractions issued by local law enforcement agencies. To obtain this information, you must go to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Accessing PSP reports requires a current driver's license number, a valid email address, a credit card and a detailed history of driving experience for each driver's license held for the past five years. You can view the PSP report online or print it.

Many carriers check PSP reports as part as the hiring process, and incorrect information on the report may lead to a bad result for drivers. Drivers can contest erroneous information by going to the FMCSA DataQ site and requesting a data review.
