Can I obtain a free driving record?

If you need to check your driver's license status in case you have a suspended license, you have a variety of options for obtaining a free driving record (also known as a driving abstract or DMV Records).

1) You can visit your DMV office in person and request a copy of your driving record. Keep in mind that fees vary by state and even by county. Some offices provide driving records for free. Others charge a fee. For fee clarification, call your DMV office before visiting.

2) Order online through your state or through a third party. To determine whether you can obtain a free driving record online through your state, visit its DMV Web site. If the online option is available, it will provide step-by-step instructions on how to proceed and indicate, before ordering, of any, if at all, fee requirements.

Or you can go directly to order a driving abstract free of charge.     

3) Try prodding your insurance provider for a free driving record. This, out of the three options, is the least reliant, dependent on each individual agent.
