Driving Records

It is a good idea to start off by talking about the kind of information that you will typically find in a driving record in the United States. Simply put, a driving record is a public file about different parts of the driving history you have created over time. Every state DMV, or whatever the motor vehicle agency in that state is called, keeps a driving record for every single licensed driver in that particular state. The driving records contain information from the last three years at least, but possibly for a longer period of time than that. The person’s gender, address, name, driver’s license number, and the state where the driver’s license was issued are all included in the driving records for that person.

Who Can Order Your Driving Record?

There is only a limited number of people that are allowed to order your driving record, regardless of what state you live in. In the vast majority of states, one of the only people that would order your driving record is you. You might need it for various reasons. However, your employer may also request your driving record, as well. Insurance agents also take a look at your driving records when they figure out the rates for your auto insurance.


How Can You Order a Driving Record?

There are a number of different ways that you can go about ordering a driving record. The simplest and most straightforward way of getting your driving record is to order it directly from the DMV in your state. However, you usually also have the option of submitting an order for your driving records to a third-party provider. You should know that in some states you have to order your driving record from the DMV. As a result, the third-party route might not be an option depending upon where you live.

Can You Order A Driving Record Online?

You can submit an order for your driving records in a number of different ways. One of the ways that you can do so is by mailing your request to the state DMV and specifying what information you are requesting. However, you do have the option of submitting the order for your driving records online in the vast majority of states in the United States. If you are getting your driving records through a third-party business that provides such records, you can likely order the driving records online on their website. You do have to pay the necessary fees to get these records.
