There are times when you might find yourself in a bit of a bind, whether legal or administrative, and need to view the law in its purest form. That is, straight out of the statutes in bare legal-speak.

You might say a law in this form is either set in stone or open to interpretation simply by the way it is set up or written. But still, the words will be hard-pressed to lead you astray from an issue even if the language makes you scratch your head in wonder.

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the MVA. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.Other Topics in This Section
