Driving Record/Motor Vehicle Report (MVR)
You can order your driving record or motor vehicle report (MVR) with your state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Secretary of State (SOS), Department of Revenue (DOR), Department of Public Safety (DPS), or Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).
Your driving record/MVR contains information about your driving history including:
- Status of drivers license
- Traffic accidents.
- Driving record points.
- Traffic law violations, convictions and fines.
- DUI public records.
- Whether your driver license is valid, suspended or cancelled.
NOTE: If you're looking for a free driver's license status check, a free drivers license lookup, or a free MVR report, most states charge a small fee to access your driving record. Beware of services that say you can check your driving record free online. In addition, if you're asking how can I find my drivers license number, or what's my driver's license number, this can be answered with a simple call to the MVR. Remember most sites that say you can check drivers license status free, are only going to provide you with limited information and then they might try to sell you something.
Driving records are used for background checks, in court proceedings, and by insurance agencies to adjust your policy rates/premiums and investigate claims. If someone has asked to search by drivers license number, they are most likely referring to checking your driving record status.
