If, like many agents, the high cost of running MVRs is a problem in your agency, PIA might be able to help. PIA recently entered into an exclusive partnership with Drivers History to offer DocIT™, a web-based, proprietary database of driver violation data that is available to agents at a fraction of the cost of a typical MVR.

DocIT contains court-based traffic violation data with a level of detail that is often beyond what is available or shown on the state motor vehicle report (MVR). Because the data is collected at a point in the legal process far in advance of the eventual transcription to the formal MVR, DocIT reports violations weeks or months earlier than previously available. Imagine having insight into 100% of your prospects’ and clients’ records at a price that makes it both affordable and reasonable to use.

How Can Agents Use DocIT™?

Agents can use this information to prequalify all applicants, or it can be used as a prescreen in front of your MVR ordering process to point you to the small percentage of drivers who will actually have ratable activity in the quoting process. By identifying those drivers with ratable history, agents will be able to selectively order MVRs, thereby significantly reducing their MVR expense.

The precise information provided by DocIT lets agents save time by quoting with accurate information the first time ensuring prospective clients are placed with the right insurance company given their risk profile.

The program’s easy-to-use web portal clearly presents key data, reduces reliance on self-reported driving history, and helps prompt full disclosure at time of quote. Using DocIT you can discover undisclosed household members who have a violation history and gain knowledge of pending (open) violations, like a recent DUI.

With DocIT you will bring value to the carriers you represent by improving your loss ratio and cutting down on incorrectly placed drivers. This will benefit your bottom line.

PIA members can access DocIT’s traffic violation information for as little as 75¢ per transaction.*
