They also offers other services such as criminal records, SSN verifications, and other employment screening services.
Take the easy route and obtain your Wisconsin driving record, also known as a driving abstract or Motor Vehicle Record (MVR), online through independent vendors. Your driving history is a public record that you can order online or by mail through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT). Requests for certified driving records can only be made through the state.
Order Your Own Driver Abstract Through WisDOT
To order your own certified or non-certified motor vehicle driving abstract through the state, you have two options: by mail or online. If you simply need to check the status of your drivers license, use the Wisconsin DOT online service or call (608) 264-7133 for a 24-hour, recorded message. Be prepared to input your Social Security number and date of birth.

Order The Driving Record Of Another Individual Through WisDOT

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 run a driving record 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.
