Is it possible to request a driving record of someone other than yourself?

You can request another person’s driving record; however, there are different conditions for different types of personal driving record requests, and each type has different requirements.

In most states, you can go to the DMV to request someone else’s driving record information if you are requesting a report that doesn’t contain their personal information (such as their address, height and weight, and photograph). In order to get this type of driving record, you’ll need to have the person’s name, date of birth and driver’s license number. You can check driving records for more than one person, but you’ll need to submit separate requests for each. Usually when you request records at a DMV location, an office processing fee will be added to your total cost.

If you are going to the DMV to request a person’s driving records with their personal information included, you will need to have written permission from that person – and the request must be notarized. Most DMVs usually accept mailed forms in lieu of appearing in person with a certified check or money order attached, but the wait can be as long as six weeks.

Businesses which frequently request to obtain driving records for more than one person will need to fill out forms to assure the DMV they are requesting for legitimate reasons.

Many people find it more convenient to find driving records online because they can have results immediately, without having to wait in line or wait for the postal service to deliver.
