The report contains a truck driver's employment history, including accidents, reasons for quitting or being fired from a job, type of trailers hauled (tankers, flatbeds and box) and types of freight transported. If you are a truck driver, monitor the information reported in the DAC documents to ensure that all items are accurate and updated.

DAC reports are very important in the employment issues. One truck driver should be very careful about their own DAC reports.

However, this truck can be very dangerous if used by someone without a full knowledge about its process and function. Hence, the use of this truck is strongly restricted to those who have successfully undergone and passed the training.
