Pull Notice System
The Employer Pull Notice Program is a system which allows employers to monitor their employees' driving records. Whenever an enrolled employee has an action taken against his/her driving record (e.g. ticket, accident, suspension, renewal, etc) the DMV notifies the employer. While California law mandates employers to enroll commercial drivers, enrollment of other non-commercial drivers is possible. Please contact the Staff Personnel Unit to discuss these instances.
