Driving Record

Find out how to request your driving records from DMV

If you are looking to order your motor vehicle report or driving record, then you can do so by reaching the Motor Vehicle Division, Department of Revenue, Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Public Safety or Secretary of State.

The information that you can find in your driving record or motor vehicle report includes:

  • Accidents that you have been involved in.
  • Driving under the influence records.
  • Driver’s license status.
  • Points of your driving record.
  • Validity of your driver’s license.
  • Violation of traffic laws.

Important Note: Driving records have several different uses, such as the insurance agencies use it to give you a quote for their rates, courts can also use your driving record in proceedings and it can also be used for a background check. Most of the times, people will request to check your driving record by searching by driver’s license number.

You also can’t actually get your full driver record without paying for it — you have to pay a small amount of fee that your state charges. If you are wondering about getting the record from free websites, then you are going in the wrong direction. You will get a little information (if any) and then these sites will try to make you purchase something. If you don’t know your driver’s license number or have forgot it, then you can easily call the MVR to know it.

Check Your Driving Record/MVR in Your State

There are various kinds of driving records that your state Motor Vehicle Division, Department of Revenue, Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Public Safety or Secretary of State may provide. These include:

  • Online driving record.
  • Motor vehicle record.
  • Certified or non-certified driving record.
  • Driving history or driving abstract.

The driving record can contain your full driving history or contain your driving history for a specific number of years. Ordering a driving record is not a hard thing but there are several ways through which you can order it and it varies by state. Also, there is more state specific information that you should know. So, take some time reading the information about your state.
