    Check Your License Status

    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 Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the BMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
