Have You Completed Your Annual Clearinghouse Queries?
In addition to conducting pre-employment queries, employers are required to query each CDL driver they employ at least once a year. The annual query is tracked on a rolling 12-month basis. This means if you conducted your last annual queries in January 2021, it is time to conduct your next round of annual queries. Log in to the Clearinghouse and visit your Query History page to see if your annual queries are due. For instructions on conducting annual queries, download the How to Conduct a Limited Query job aid.
