All drivers who provide services for clients must:
Possess valid driver’s license(s) as required by the governing jurisdiction(s). A copy of the valid updated license is maintained in the driver’s individual file.
Pass an annual DOT physical exam. Licensed medical personnel who are familiar with the exam and requirements will carry out this exam.
Documented safe driving experience.
Have a Motor Vehicle Record check (MVR) through the MN state Department of Motor Vehicles. All drivers must have and maintain a clean MVR for the past 36 months and may not have had a conviction or forfeiture of bond for hit and run; or a suspension or revocation of driving privileges during the previous 48 months; or a DWI or DUI conviction ever. If the driver does not meet Mainland Transportation requirements, will not be eligible for driver status. Rechecks of the MVR will be obtained every year.
At the time of employment references of experience and expertise in transporting individuals who are young, elderly or have disabilities must be provided. This documentation may be from previous job experience working with the elderly – or persons with disabilities – and must be verified by previous employer management. Drivers will be supervised until proficiency is demonstrated.
Not operate our vehicles under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or take a prescribed or un-prescribed medication that impairs driving skills.
Successfully complete criminal, elderly abuse and child abuse background checks prior to employment. If the driver shows any evidence of felonious crimes or other indication that the driver may present a legal, moral, or ethical risk to passengers, the driver will not meet Mainland Transportation requirements.
