How to Fix DAC report and driver records for yourself for truck drivers so you can get a better trucking job.
Every day I hear from truck drivers who ask me what a Dac report is or other drivers who want to know how to remove bad information from their Dac Report. Some drivers cannot get a job in this tight market because of bad or inaccurate information. They all want to know what they can do and if those fix Dac report repair services really work.
First lets set the record straight no DAC repair service can remove any information from your DAC Report. Not even DAC can remove information from your report unless the company you worked for fails to verify your dispute claim within 30 days. The only ones who can remove the information is the company that put it on there. Or by court order.
So I decided to write this report. You do not need to pay those expensive repair services for something you can do yourself in about the same amount of time. I will show you step by step how to fix Dac report yourself and how long it will take. This is going to make a lot of those repair services mad but from what I'm hearing from a lot of drivers is that they are unemployed and cannot afford those expensive repair services.
But they cannot get a job because of what is on these reports. Who is going to help them? So here is my report. Hope it is helpful to someone.

However, after 7 years, things like accidents, work record, and eligibility for rehire will be removed, leaving only the dates of employment and what type of experience you had. Additionally, if a company goes out of business, accidents, work record, and eligibility for rehire is supposed to be removed. Another reason to fix dac report

Three Years – Drug and alcohol information
Seven Years – Categories of information that could contain derogatory information. Example: Section 11 as shown above will NOT be shown on any record over 7 years – even those records with “satisfactory” indicated.
Ten years – The entire employment history record.
