Does a criminal record contain speeding tickets and accidents from a driving record?
Criminal and Driving RecordsNo, a criminal record does not generally contain speeding tickets and accidents from a driving record. However, a criminal record will contain any driving-related convictions, such as DUI and DWI, that are also found on a driving record. Criminal records and driving records are two different records maintained by different governmental agencies.
Criminal records contain information about arrests and convictions of all kinds, while driving records contain information about a person’s driving history, which includes driving-related convictions. Minor speeding tickets and traffic accidents are not criminal acts and are therefore not stored on criminal records.
There are exceptions. If alcohol or drugs are involved in the ticket or accident and it leads to a DUI or DWI, such a conviction will appear on a criminal record because it’s considered a criminal act.
Also, hit and run accidents are criminal acts which appear on criminal records. But for the most part, if you’re mostly interested in finding out about a person’s driving history, it’s best to simply obtain a driving record, which will contain all the information related to a person’s driving history, including criminal-related driving.
