    I believe everyone uses the dac report. I think there are two or three different dac reports, kind of like credit reports. They are primarily used for insurance purposes. My wife and I are currently hired on with a private carrier, and he said he doesn't care about the dac, but his insurance company requires it. I wouldn't worry about it, just start applying to companies and let them decide. Many companies overlook a lot of things on your dac. Good luck!

    I think companies over 200 trucks are the ones that use dac.

    I have worked for many smaller companies under 100-200 trucks and no dac is on file for those times.

    Most company's with less than a couple hundred trucks will not use DAC. It is just a service they can subscribe too if they want.
    The best way to look, that I can think of is to use safestat. You can set your search for the area you want and get a list of company's. Many of these will not be interstate on first search, but keep refining your criteria till you get the names you want. There are thousands of small regional and OTR company's out there. They do not advertise much, just a one day add in the paper at times, if they really need a driver.

    even companies with under 100 trucks still report too dac, Ive worked for 3 or 4 companies of under 100 trucks and there all on my dac report. Most will use dac too get a job history of driving from you and too verify your record.

    if you go by my dac report i have only driven about 2 years out of 7. it doesnt matter how big or small the company is. it is up to them. some large companys use it only for your employment and not criminal and some companys check what you had for breakfast threw dac.

    Hit or miss with DAC, some use it like the bible, some would rather wipe their........with it. If something false is on your DAC, be honest and upfront with the company about whats on it. That way it's not a suprise when they see it. Unless its like Knight, or JB or something.

    Since there are quite a few people having difficulty finding a job due to something negative on their DAC, whether legit or not, I thought it might be nice to have a list Of companies that don't use the service.
