How to Obtain Your Massachusetts Driving Record

No matter who you are, you can obtain a Massachusetts driving record through the state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles Merit Rating Board (RMV MRB). The record itself contains information including all your past at-fault accidents, any out-of-state driving history, and all past traffic violations. You may find that this record is used to verify your personal information during a background check or to adjust your car insurance policy’s rates. It may also be used during legal proceedings.

Applying to Get the Driving Record

You can get a copy of your own driving record online, by mail, in person or by phone. You can obtain another person’s records in all the same ways except by phone.

Order Online

To order online, go to the MA RMV driving record website. There, you should fill out the form and pay a $20 fee for the certified record or $8 for the unattested record. The non-certified record can be printed, but the certified record will be mailed to you.

Order by Mail

Ordering by mail is also possible. Send in a letter with your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • MA driver’s license number
  • Mailing address
  • Payment

Types of Driving Records

Massachusetts has two different types of driving records. These are certified records and noncertified records. Only true and attested records are able to be used in court, because these are certified by the Massachusetts RMV.

These records both contain all of your personal information, such as your full name, your date of birth, and your license number. At-fault collisions, your out-of-state driving history (if you have one), and all past traffic violations are also listed on these driving records. Points may be removed from the record, but the violations or collisions still remain listed, which is something to keep in mind if you are seeking employment or are searching for information through a background check. Non-certified forms are available immediately when ordered online.
