Do drivers have a CSA score?
Do Drivers Have CSA Scores.
Drivers do not have their own CSA scores, as CSA scores are assigned to carriers based on their DOT number.
If a driver receives a violation, it is assigned to the carrier and not the driver.
Drivers, however, have unique Pre-employment Screening Program (PSP) records with the FMCSA..

How do I clean up my CSA score?
Within two years, owner-operators can challenge a CSA violation to remove points or reduce the severity of the citation. After two years, violations are completely removed from a motor carriers record. All citations can be looked up in FMCSA’s DataQ system, and a Request for Data Review (RDR) can be submitted.
How many points are you allowed on your CSA score?
Each violation adds anywhere from 1-10 points based on severity. Of course you want to keep your points as low as possible, but there’s no minimum point total that determines when the FMCSA will take action.
Will a verbal warning affect your CSA score?
Does a violation count even if the driver was not placed out of service or given a warning or citation? Yes. Regardless of the action that follows the discovery of a violation or warning, anything listed on a roadside inspection will be used in the CSA measurement system.
How long does it take for CSA points to fall off?
The measurement system uses the previous 24 months’ worth of data when calculating a carrier’s BASIC CSA Scores. Anything older than 24 months will not be used (for drivers it is the last 36 months of data).
How often will basic scores change?
The data used includes state-reported crashes, roadside inspections, and investigation results from the last two years. Data is assigned to a carrier’s DOT number and is updated once per month.
How do I check my CSA score for free?
You can access your CSA score by registering for a PIN with your USDOT or MC number. It’s important to note that your composite CSA score is not public information. Individual BASIC scores, however, are accessible with a basic DOT number search at csa.fmcsa.dot.gov.
How do I check my dot scores?
Company safety ratings can be viewed on the SAFER website. You can view the safety rating of any motor carrier with an active US DOT number. Click on “Company Snapshot” and search for a carrier by USDOT Number, MC Number or name. If you are interested in carrier Safety Measurement Scores (SMS scores), click here.
What is a red flag violation?
egregious violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). These violations are sometimes referred to as Red Flag Violations and are always investigated as part of a carrier investigation. The SI conducting the investigation looks to see if the violation has been corrected.
Does an overweight ticket affect your CSA score?
No. Overweight tickets do not affect your CSA. Initially when the program began, it counted similar to an unsecured cargo ticket…but that was changed pretty quick and overweight tickets no longer count.
How do you challenge a CSA score?
Want to challenge a crash? Submit a Request for Data Review (RDR). Crashes will be reviewed and categorized into 1 of 8 sections. All crashes now considered non-preventable will be properly displayed on the driver’s PSP and CSA points will be removed from their carrier.
