Learn how commercial employers enroll in the Employer Pull Notice (EPN) program, enroll drivers, request records, and more.
How to Enroll in the EPN Program
To enroll in the EPN program, complete an Application for Employer Pull Notice Account (INF 1104). Mail your application to the address on the form.
How to Enroll Drivers
There are two different driver enrollment forms, depending on if the drivers have a California driver license (DL) or out-of-state DL:
- California licensed drivers: Commercial Employer Pull Notice Enrollment or Deletion of Drivers and Instructions (INF 1100).
- Out-of-state licensed drivers: Commercial or Government Employer Pull Notice Enrollment of Out-of-State Licensed Drivers form and Instructions (INF 1102).
- A driver licensed in another state who does not have a prior California record will be assigned an index number (“X” number) for tracking purposes. The assigned “X” number will appear on the “Driver Record Report”.
Mail your completed form(s) to the address on the form.
- $5 for each enrolled driver, due at the time of enrollment. If you do not send payment with the application, DMV will bill your Automated Billing of Information Services (ABIS) account (see below).
- $1 for each annually generated report and each action/activity report, billed to your ABIS account.
How to Delete Drivers
To delete drivers from your EPN account, complete a Commercial Employer Pull Notice Enrollment or Deletion of Drivers and Instructions (INF 1100) and mail it to the address on the form. For drivers with an out-of-state license, use the driver’s assigned “X” number on the form.
Employers must notify DMV immediately when a driver’s employment is terminated to avoid being sent and billed for unnecessary driver records. These fees are nonrefundable.
Do not use the same form to add and delete drivers.
How to Make Changes
- To file changes to a company name, address, phone number, or contact person, complete a Commercial Employer Pull Notice Requester Account Notice of Change form and Instructions (INF 4). Submit the INF 4 within 10 days of the change.
- Ownership changes, including most mergers, require closing the existing account and establishing a new account with the new owner/employer information.
- To change information in the “Remarks” section of a Commercial Employer Pull Notice Enrollment or Deletion of Drivers and Instructions (INF 1100), complete a new INF 1100, mark the appropriate box, and provide updated information in the remarks column. This action will not generate a new record.
How to Request Records
There are three ways to request a copy of driver records for a prospective hire or casual driver:
- Complete a Request for Driver License/Identification Card Status and Record Information (INF 1119) and mail it to the address on the form.
- A $5 fee will be charged to your EPN account (you do not need to submit a payment with the form).
- Require the prospective hire or casual driver to purchase their own driver record for $5 at their local DMV field office.
- Request a driver record through a preapproved vendor (a preapproved vendor list can be obtained by contacting the Account Processing Unit at (916) 657-5564) or online.
Billing, Invoicing, and Payment
When you enroll in the EPN program, we will also give you an ABIS account number for automated billing (this number is different from your EPN requester code). We will send you periodic invoices to pay your bill.
- If you have less than $5 in charges on your account, DMV will send quarterly invoices.
- If you have $5 or more in charges on your account, DMV will send monthly invoices.
- If you have a minus (−) behind the dollar amount on your invoice, this is a credit and no payment is due.
Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. To avoid processing delays, detach the remittance slip from the invoice statement and submit original remittance with check or money order to the DMV address shown on the invoice. If we do not receive payment within 30 days from the date of the invoice, we will send a delinquent notice to the account holder (employer). If payment is not received within 30 days from delinquent notice, we may close the account.
Once an account is closed for nonpayment, it cannot be restored and you must establish a new account. You must submit full payment of the outstanding balance and a $5 fee for each reenrolled driver to reapply for the EPN program. We will not accept a new EPN application until the delinquent amount has been paid.
If you have mailed payments or correspondence to the ABIS unit, please allow 30 days for ABIS to process your payment. If you need to discuss your account, you must be the contact person and have your account number ready.
