Far all Paramedic jobs I've searched they say they check your driving record. When they do this are they checking the MVR that shows your current infractions and points on your license due to things like speeding tickets, or do they check the CLUE report that shows all the collisions/wrecks you have been in?

There is no universal answer. It is up to the employer what they check.

Well, I know we have not hired because of a driving record.

As Gordan Graham says:

"Past performance predicts future practice"

If your reckless in your POV, why wouldnt you be in something you dont own. and if you wreck it, and you have a horrible record, even if it wasnt your fault, it looks very bad and enhances liability for the services end.

I ask because I've got 2 speeding tickets from 2006 and I had a string of bad luck resulting in 3 wrecks in 2007. They should be off my record by the time I'm done with medic school but the CLUE report shows all my wrecks on there that I had to file insurance claims for.
