Driver Screening & Dispatching Process


At Capital Driver Leasing, we strive for a culture of Quality, Compliance and Safety.  We've internalized that effective Driver screening is most important to these goals. As such, we require that every Driver applicant be Screened & Road Tested prior to dispatch.  The Driver’s are thoroughly vetted.

“You Are What Your Record Says you are”…. Paraphrased from Coach Bill Parcells

Doing so ensures that each Driver’s background and qualifications are reviewed objectively, by our Team of experienced professionals.

The questionnaire
