By initialing and clicking below to submit my information, I:
              • I certify that this questionnaire was completed by me, and the information is true and complete to
                the best of my knowledge.
              • I authorize Dart Transit Company or Mainstream Transportation, Inc. to investigate my background,
                motor vehicle record, any possible criminal record, and prior work history, and
                agree that misrepresentation or omission of facts is legitimate cause for decertification. This is a
                questionnaire for driver certification, not employment.
              • I hereby authorize the release of all records regarding job performance from prior employers or parties
                with whom I have contracted, and release them from any and all liability regarding information they provide.
              • I also authorize the release of information to the Safety Qualification Technician at Dart or
                Mainstream concerning (i) all positive drug test results during the past three (3) years; (ii) all alcohol
                test results of 0.04 or greater during the past three (3) years; (iii) all alcohol test results of 0.02 or
                greater but less than 0.04 during the past three (3) years; and (iv) all instances in which I refused to
                submit to a DOT required drug and/or alcohol test during the past three (3) years, and (v) all other
                violations of DOT agency drug and alcohol testing regulations. This is in accordance with Federal
                Motor Carrier Safety Regulations 49 CFR§§§§40.25, 40.321, 382.405, and 382.413.
              • Furthermore, I submit that I have been expressly notified of my rights regarding the investigative
                information provided to Dart or Mainstream as outlined in FMCSR §391.23(i), which includes: the
                right to review information provided by previous employers, the right to have errors in the information
                corrected by the previous employer and for that employer to re-send that corrected information to
                Dart or Mainstream, and the right to have a rebuttal statement attached to the alleged erroneous
                information if the previous employer and I cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.
              • If seeking a position with a fleet operation under contract to Dart or Mainstream, I authorize a release
                of this Certification Questionnaire and investigative notes concerning my background, credit rating,
                possible criminal record, and prior work history to such fleet operator(s).
              • I authorize Dart Transit Company, Mainstream Transportation, Inc. and any other Dart Network company to contact me regarding driver opportunities within the Dart Network now and/or in the future including via an automated telephone dialing system and/or pre-recorded message at the contact number(s) I provided above. I understand that I may revoke this consent at anytime by contacting a Dart Network recruiter.
