Mail your completed form, consent letter and fees to the address above or visit one of the Tennessee Department of Safety's Driver Service Centers.
In some cases, an employer or an auto insurance company wants to review your driving history. Or you need to check your drivers license status to ensure you don't have a revoked or suspended license. Most commonly, motorists review their Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) to:
- Check drivers license status and license suspension
- Check drivers license points and violation codes
- Check traffic tickets, violations and fines
- Check auto accidents
- Check driver license classification and endorsements
Car insurance companies factor in driving history when determining your car insurance premium. If your driving record reflects any traffic tickets, auto accidents, DUI or DWI convictions, an insurance agent could consider you a high-risk driver. The higher the risk, the higher the rate.
