What information do I need to request a copy of my driving record?

To get a copy of your driving record, all you’ll need is your personal information and the VIN and license plate of the car you drive. Obtaining your driving record is easy. You can do it through the DMV, or, if you want to handle it from home and expedite the process, you can use any number of online sites to order your driving record, because it is public information and you are welcome to it whenever you want. Simply find and submit the form online, pay the fee, and you can have your record as soon as minutes from the time you submit.

Remember to try to get as comprehensive a record as you can, meaning one that goes back as far as possible. Some offenses can stay on your record for ten years or more, and when checking your driving record, you will want to know exactly what to expect. Keep in mind, however, that most insurance companies or employers only check back as far as three to five years if they check at all.
