- An MVR is processed to check the driving history and performance of the applicant
- If the candidate is not eliminated at this time, the applicant is requested to complete and extensive application that includes a background information section and the FMCSA Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) is obtained

ATR takes pride in the personal attention given to each candidate. Each applicant will be guided through the above process by the same management personnel from beginning to finish. At ATR, we do not send information to different departments to obtain approval. Our management team is trained and qualified to perform the qualification process. Our candidates take comfort in knowing that their information is handled sensitively and confidentially. If a candidate does not qualify, the very person who disqualified the application explains the circumstances directly. This is the personal touch each applicant deserves.
