Driver Qualification Files

October 29, 2019 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM (EDT)


As a fleet manager, driver training and vehicle maintenance are important items to keep on top of, but there’s more to it than just people and mechanics. You must also conduct periodic reviews of Driver Qualification Files (DQFs) to ensure you stay compliant with the Department of Transportation (DOT).

PUCO Transportation Department: Motor Carrier and Rail Enforcement Officer, Jim Underation, will be taking participants through each step of exactly what should be included in a Driver Qualification File.

  • What does an auditor look for the most?
  • What does an auditor find missing the most?
  • What happens to you if an auditor finds items missing or mistakes in your driver qualification files?

Make sure to register for this session and find the answers to these questions and more.
