Q:  Does the AvatarFleet/SambaSafety integration support the California Employee Pull Notice (EPN)?

A:  Yes, in addition to the MVR, AvatarFleet also supports the EPN and maintains California EPN compliance requirements.


Q:  What is the California Employee Pull Notice?

A:  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’s license, recognize problem drivers or driving behavior, improve public safety, & minimize liability.


Q:  How does the EPN work? 

A: Each employer enrolled in the EPN program is assigned a requester code. The requester code is added to applicable employees’ driver’s license records. When an employee’s driver’s license record is updated due to an action or activity, the CA DMV makes 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’s record is generated and sent to the employer.

  1. Convictions
  2. Failures to appear (FTAs).
  3. Accidents.
  4. Driver’s license suspensions or revocations.
  5. Any other actions taken against their driving privilege
  6. Driver enrollment into the EPN program

Q:  How is billing handled?

A:  Sometimes these things can be tricky, especially when there are customers in common, but rest assured, we’ve thoroughly thought that out!  Please contact your SambaSafety or AvatarFleet rep to learn more about invoicing standard operating procedures for customers in common.
