Yes, it’s possible to get a copy of another individual’s driving record. But, each state decides who can gain access to other people’s driving abstracts, so check with your state’s licensing division for detailed information. If you do qualify, you will need to complete some sort of agency form and/or obtain written permission from the person in question.

Most states do grant partial access to another person’s record. That means information such as the person’s name, address, phone number, age, Social Security number, and driver identification number are blocked, while data pertaining to accidents, restrictions, endorsements, moving convictions, and suspensions are available for viewing. The Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) prohibits non-authorized users from seeing personal information that identifies a driver.

Generally, attorneys, government officials, employers, insurance companies and others with a proven, legitimate interest in seeing such information can obtain a copy of your motor vehicle report by completing the appropriate steps.
