How To Obtain Your New Mexico Driving Record

Driving records or driver histories, as they are called in New Mexico, are sometimes required for employment or insurance. You also may be interested in checking your own driving record for accuracy or to know how many points you may have accumulated against it.

You can get your New Mexico driving record by ordering it from the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division. You can submit an order for your driving record if you have a New Mexico driver’s license and know your Social Security number. You can order your record either online or in person.

Applying to Get the Driving Record

You can order your driving record online, and many people find this the most convenient way of getting their driving record. You first need to know which kind of driver record you want to make this order online. You will have to fill out a Driver Record Request Form online to get your New Mexico driving record. Additionally, you should have all the following information available:

  • Your date of birth
  • The last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • A credit or debit card for payment

You will also need your most recent driver’s license or commercial driver’s license. You need to use Adobe Reader and the latest version of a common Internet browser when ordering your driving record online.

Required Documentation

The first kind of documentation that you need to get your New Mexico driving record is your most recently issued New Mexico driver’s license or commercial driver’s license. In addition, you need to have your Social Security card, so you can easily provide the last four digits of your SSN.

Fees for Getting Your Driving Record and Payment Methods

The fees for getting your driving record vary based on what kind of driving record you are getting. The fee for a non-certified copy of your driver history is $6.30. The fee for a certified copy is $9.99. If you order your record online, you must pay with a debit or credit card. If you order the record in person at an office, you may pay with credit, debit card, or personal check.

Types of Driving Records

Non-certified driving records provide information about the status of your driver’s license and any convictions; however, your employer, insurance company, or other parties may not accept them. Certified copies contain the same information but are accompanied by an official letter of certification from the New Mexico MVD. Knowing which record you need is important before you make your request.

Also, records that you receive online are for three years only. If you need a driver history that is older than that, you’ll need to go in person to the nearest New Mexico MVD location to make your request.
