    I talked to my recuiter, and she cleared my DAC report (expect for cr england lieing). But she also said she was awaiting my psp report? The only psp l know is the handheld game l got for my son. Anyone knows what that is? She explained saying something about the weight station.. l dont know so any help would help. Im out of California.

    I would guess you mean psi which is pressure, has something to do in the weigh station about some kind of pressure

    It is the Pre-employment Screening Program through the FMCSA. Its new and went online at the same time that CSA2010 did.

    You can get a copy of your PSP from the FMCSA for $10. You can pay with a credit or debit card and immediately get a PDF or HTML file for immediate viewing and printing. It's a basic snapshot of what determines your CSA rating. It gives your crash activity for the last 5 years. Also your inspection activity for the last 3.

    Here is a link; https://www.psp.fmcsa.dot.gov/psp/default.aspx

    Thanks bro. Cool dog, l cant wait to trun mines into a truckerdog. But thanks for that info. So l had no accidents (ever), and this is my first trucking job. (So l should have no worries about that right)?

    How is a PSP different from a DAC?

    can't read the sign
    Dac is what a company says about you....while I think the PSP has to do with tickets, violations etc...that you have accumulated

    DAC is a record from former employers, sometimes fact, sometimes fiction.

    PSP is a driving record 9issued by FMCSA, showing your CSA points and how you got them, record of accidents, and recults of inspections.
