    Company I left in 2020 was using my license after I left the company. They used my license it appears for almost 18 months consecutively after I left and while I was actually at a different carrier.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I reported this to the USDOT & FMCSA. Apparently, this is a prevalent problem throughout the nation.

    You work for a company you quit you go to another company, but the other company is still using your CDL to manipulate ELOGS & ELD’s.

    just curious if anyone has experienced similar situations and why we don’t have a control system/network of our CDL. In other words, we take and remove our licenses from the carriers we work with. How are they able to still utilize our licenses without us knowing?

    I heard this also happens in the healthcare & other fields as well. Such as a doctor’s using other doctor’s state licenses. I guess it’s the same with CDLs companies abusing Fiduciary responsibility.

    The company doesn't have your actual license, just the number off your license.
    Personally, I wouldn't care.

    I hear you makes sense.

    BUT (lol), as a driver, I find it disrespectful and I want fines amounting in whatever they stole using my information technically. I’d like for their company to go nonrated-conditional or shut down completely.

    that just means all drivers should just let companies do whatever to their drivers license. That’s kinda crazy in theory, especially, in the situation of an accident

    I initially thought that, but I think it’s a group of them passing around drivers licenses to use and utilize the ELD extra time scam.

    So driver can’t point a finger at a company and say it’s just that company, your license information got handed off from somebody else to someone else hot potato.

    So in theory, yes it’s like a group of the Russian/Lithuanian white semi (but really PENSKE/RYDER) mafia.

    The confusion is what PENSKE/RYDER like doing using the Russians/Lithuanians as a cover. After all, PENSKE/RYDER want their vehicle mileage so they could sell used trucks and have mechanics.

    but sadly, tons of drivers licenses are being utilized without their awareness. Even while they’re working for another carrier, because you would think even the carrier they’re working at would get an alert in a system somewhere, or the government’s clearing house would ask a question to the driver about working at two carrier’s at once.

    Don't know why you think they need your license to do it. A ghost driver, that's existed forever.
    You can't remove a driver from your ELD until 6 months are up, just like you have to keep the paper logs for 6 months.

    Yeah, I understand. They need a real license to commit fraud. They take the risk of the DOT officer at an inspection, or agent during an audit, not going to call that ghost driver. Truth is government probably double checking or calling nobody. That’s how they get away with it

    what happens if they actually call that ghost driver or did a check on them and their work history? Lol
     
    Zonno Thanks this.

    You're free & clear from all that. Move on with your life and put all that worry about nothing in your rearview mirror.
    Don't waste your money with lawyers because you won't get anything out of it except debt. Companies in your future can find out about lawsuits and won't touch you for employment because other companies won't take a chance on you suing them for some frivolous reason.
