"Federal Apps Processor is your comprehensive FMCSA mandated driver hiring solution for transportation companies"


Nothing is more important to your business than the people that you hire. When you think about the process involved in hiring new employees, it’s enough to make your head spin. From the moment that you start searching for new drivers, your life is going to be full of headaches and hassles.

Unless. You made a different choice.

What if the hiring process was as simple as a phone call? Or a quick trip on the internet?

Federal Applications Processor Hoffenmer is a comprehensive solution for hiring drivers the quick, legal, and inexpensive way.

So, what’s involved?

First, we will need the most basic information regarding your prospective new driver. If you can give us the name of the driver, and their contact information (phone number and email address), you can leave the rest up to us.

    Here’s what it will look like for your prospective employee:

  1. We will contact the individual to obtain their information, as well as permission to conduct various pre-employment checks such as: MVR, PSP, Clearinghouse Query, a pre-employment drug screen where required.
  2. We will issue a pre-employment job application to your prospective driver in accordance with 49 CFR § 391.51.
  3. If the Clearinghouse Query and pre-employment drug screen are completed and the individual is not prohibited from driving, you can put the driver to work while we complete the Driver Qualification File as mandated by 49 CFR § 391.51.
  4. We will conduct an employment verification on the driver and have your DQ File compiled for you within 30 days of hiring the driver, as is required by federal law.

And that’s it. All you need to do is complete the Driver Qualification application, or contact one of our agents at (240) 544-0930 and they can walk you through the process. Five minutes.

Boom. Done.
