Driving Record/Motor Vehicle Report (MVR)
You can order your driving record or motor vehicle report (MVR) with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Secretary of State (SOS), Department of Revenue (DOR), Department of Public Safety (DPS), or Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).
Your driving record/MVR contains information about your driving history including:
- Status of drivers license
- Traffic accidents.
- Driving record points.
- Traffic law violations, convictions and fines.
- DUI public records.
- Whether your driver license is valid, suspended or cancelled.
Driving records are used for background checks, in court proceedings, and by insurance agencies to adjust your policy rates/premiums and investigate claims. If someone has asked to search by drivers license number, they are most likely referring to checking your driving record status.
