Although you can order a driving record directly from the Michigan SOS, one of the fastest ways to get your Driving Record for Employment Purposes is to order it online through a 3rd-party advertiser, such as DrivingRecords.com. They also offers other services such as criminal records, SSN verifications, and other employment screening services.
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 Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
The database contains information on the more than 7 million drivers in Michigan. It's maintained by the Secretary of State (SOS), and it's available to insurance companies, potential employers, and law enforcement agencies. It's available to you, too.
If a driving record is pulled for court, for a law enforcement agency, or for your own use, it will show all actions, including accidents where you were not at fault.
If a record is produced for insurance, employment, or credit inquiries, the record is edited to remove minor administrative entries or accidents for which you did not receive a ticket and a corresponding court conviction or civil infraction determination.
If you'd like to take a look at your own record, you can purchase a certified copy for $8 at a Secretary of State PLUS office or SUPER!Center location. All you'll need to do is show your driver's license.
You can also order it through the state by completing a Record Request form.
The form will need your name and address, phone number, Michigan driver license number, birth date, and a reason for requesting it (to help the department determine if it should be edited). You can also request that it be mailed to an address other than your own.
Complete the form and mail it to:
- Michigan Department of State
- Record Lookup Unit
- 7064 Crowner Drive
- Lansing, MI 48918-1540
Include a check or money order for $7, or pay using a Discover, Visa, or MasterCard credit card. Certified copies are available for an additional $1.
Another way you can order your report is by telephone at (517) 322-1624. Payment by Discover, Visa, or MasterCard is required, and you can only have it sent to your address of record.
Mailed and telephone requests can generally be processed within three weeks, but they might take up to eight.
To expedite the process if you don't want to trek to a PLUS office or SUPER!Center and wait in line, you can find numerous companies online who can send you your driving record via e-mail or fax within days (for a larger fee), shaving weeks off the time it takes to find out what your record is saying about you.
To correct errors in your driving record, contact the Secretary of State Information Center at (888) 767-6424 for assistance.
You may request someone else's driving record if you are doing so for one of the permissable reasons under the law. If you don't satisfy one of those reasons, you may still be issued the driving record, but the driver's personal information will be withheld. The application form is available online.
