What is an Employer Pull Notice (EPN)?
The Employer Pull Notice (EPN) provides businesses with a quick method of tracking the driving records of employees.
Employers who enroll in the EPN program receive what is known as a requester code. Once the requester code is obtained, it is then added to the Drivers License record of the employee. When the DL is updated, all actions and activities will be recorded. An electronic check will be made in order to see if a pull notice is on file with the driver. A driver record will be mailed to the employer if the action/activity is one that must be reported under the EPN program.
The EPN gives your company access to monitor the DL records of employees who drive under your organization. Monitoring accomplishes the following:
- Improves public safety.
- Proves if each driver has a valid DL.
- Uncovers hazardous drivers or driving behavior.
- Assists in decreasing your liability.
Who needs to enroll in EPN?
- You claim a Corporation, LLC, or Partnership, and your Motor Company activity requires drivers to hold Commercial Driver’s License or you utilize driver, use family, or the vehicles are driven by individuals from your entity.
- If you are an individual; who has 2 or more vehicles and the last one of your vehicles requires the driver to hold a Commercial Drivers License
