While being considered for a driving-related job, an employer may require a copy of your personal driving record before making a decision to hire you as a driver. You may desire a copy of your driving record to review accident history, traffic citations and the status of your driver’s license. In order to view your personal driving record, all you need to do is petition the designated agency for the state that issued your license.
Visit your local Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) in person to request a copy of your personal driving record. Your state may require you to fill out a special request form.
Provide identifying information to the DMV representative, such as your name, driver’s license number and date of birth. Generally, you will have to pay a fee to obtain a copy of your record. You will leave the DMV office with a copy of your driving record in hand.
Write to your local DMV office to request a copy of your record. Include, with your written request, your name, driver’s license number, date of birth, mailing address and the required processing fee.
You will receive a copy of your personal driving record in the mail. It may take a few days or a few weeks for your DMV record to arrive in the mail. The exact time frame will vary between DMV offices.
Request a copy of your driving record online. Many DMV offices have an online website that allows you to make a request. Depending upon the website, you may be able to view and print your driving record online or it may be mailed to an address of your choice. A valid credit card is needed in order to pay the required processing fee.
