VLC Manages FMCSA Clearinghouse

VLC is a third-party administrator. What this means is VLC will be able to run queries on your drivers and new prospects (as required by the FMCSA) through the clearinghouse.

Navigating through Federal Websites are not always the most user friendly. VLC has set up many accounts for both Companies and Drivers. We are able to navigate through out the application process with ease.

EPN | Employer Pull Notice

Companies based in California or have terminals in California and employee any of the below license types are REQUIRED to acquire an EPN Account through the CA DMV. An owner operator who is running under his/her own name (not as an LLC or Corporation) is exempt from registering an account.
Companies are required to keep the most updated Driver Record in their employee’s driver files.

A Driver Record will reflect:

  • DL#
  • Individuals characteristics (height, weight, eye color, hair color, etc)
  • DL Expiration date
  • Medical Requirements (glasses required, hearing impairments, etc)
  • Potential Safety Red Flags: Convictions, Accidents, Suspension. Revocations, Failures to Appear

Drivers will be enrolled under their employer’s company Account number. A new driver record is mailed (snail mail) to the employer when:

  1. When there is a change to a driver’s record
    • Convictions
    • Failures to Appear
    • Accidents
    • Driver License Suspensions or Revocations
    • Any other actions taken against the driving privilege
  2. Add a new driver
  3. 12-month annual driver record
    The Benefits of an EPN Account
    • Improves public safety.
    • Determines if each driver has a valid DL.
