2. I authorize B.T.Trucking, Inc (“Prospective Employer”) to access the FMCSA Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) system to seek information regarding my commercial driving safety record and information regarding my safety inspection history. I understand that I am consenting to the release of safety performance information in-cluding crash data from the previous five (5) years and inspection history from the previous three (3) years. I un-derstand and acknowledge that this release of information may assist the Prospective Employer to make a deter-mination regarding my suitability as an employee.
3. I further understand that neither the Prospective Employer nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information has the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. I understand I may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov. If I am challenging crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data. I understand my request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.
4. Please note: Any crash or inspection in which you were involved will display on your PSP report.

Similarly, all inspections, with or without violations, appear on the PSP report. State citations associated with FMCSR violations that have been adjudicated by a court of law will also appear, and remain, on a PSP report.
