Employer Pull Notice Program

Adult Desk

The Employer Pull Notice (EPN) program enables commercial and government organizations to monitor the driving records of employees who drive for them. By monitoring their employees’ driving records, organizations can:

  • Ensure that each driver has a valid driver license.
  • Recognize problem drivers or driving behavior.
  • Improve public safety.
  • Minimize liability.

How it Works

Each employer enrolled in the EPN program is assigned a requester code. The requester code is added to applicable employees’ driver license records. When an employee’s driver license record is updated due to an action or activity, we make an electronic check to determine if a pull notice is on file. If the action or activity is one that must be reported under the EPN program (see below), a driver record is generated and mailed to the employer.

Action and Activity Reports

Every year on the enrollment date, the EPN program automatically generates and mails a driver record when any of the following actions or activities occurs:

  • The driver is enrolled in the EPN program.
  • When a driver has any of the following actions or activities added to their driver record:
    • Convictions.
    • Failures to appear (FTAs).
    • Accidents.
    • Driver license suspensions or revocations.
    • Any other actions taken against their driving privilege.

Who is Required to Enroll?

Employers must enroll any driver employed to operate any vehicle if:

These requirements include:

  • Owners who own, lease, or otherwise operate more than one motor unit or more than three towed vehicles.
  • Owner/operators who have partners.
  • Family members and volunteer drivers.
  • Individuals employed for more than 30 work days in the preceding six months.

How to Enroll in the EPN Program and Request Records

Commercial and government employers have different steps for enrolling and requesting records:

In order for the EPN program to maintain accurate records, employers must notify DMV in a timely manner whenever they make changes that affect their EPN account, including:

  • Changes to the method for making inquiries and receiving responses (online or electronic file transfer).
  • Termination of enrolled drivers (per California Vehicle Code (CVC) §1808.1).
  • Address changes (mailing and physical).
  • Ownership changes (corporate officers, partners).
  • Employment changes (new drivers, termination of drivers).
  • Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) changes.
  • Telephone number changes.
  • Business closing.
  • Mergers.
  • Business sale.
  • Company name change.
  • Account contact person change.

Find instructions for making changes to Commercial or Government accounts.

There are two electronic options to make inquiries and receive reports:

  • File transfer: You can use DMV secure file transfer (SFT) system and/or the File Generation system to send inquires and receive reports for prospective new hires, casual drivers, and newly enrolled drivers. There is no additional charge to use these services and minimal technical assistance is required. Contact the Information Services’ Automation Development at CPDADU@dmv.ca.gov for more information.
  • Online: Inquires and responses for currently enrolled drivers, prospective new hires, or casual drivers are available through an online provider if you also have a Requester Account. This process is not available for generated driver records. See the list of approved service providers or contact the Account Processing Unit at (916) 657–5564.

EPN Agents

EPN Agents are authorized by DMV to act on the behalf of an EPN account holder. All EPN Agents must use our SFT website for submitting and receiving driver records and adding and deleting drivers from the account holder’s file.

EPN Agents receive record information directly from DMV to perform a specific business function as defined in CVC §1808.1. Use of an EPN Agent does not absolve the employer of responsibility for compliance with the requirements of CVC §1808.1.

Permitting employers to utilize agents does not affect the current procedures for processing EPN requests. It is important that all parties involved understand the EPN Program Requirements (INF 1107).

To utilize the service of an approved EPN Agent, the EPN account holder must complete and sign the EPN Agent Authorization (INF 2110).

If you need assistance, contact the Automation Development Unit at (916) 657–5582.
