To check your driving record, you need to go through your local Department of Motor Vehicles or state driver’s licensing office. You can request a copy of your driving record online, through the mail or in person, and it will cost $2 to $25, depending on your state of residence. Looking up your driving record can be useful to check for possible errors and to find out exactly what points or violations are on your license.
Ways to Get Your Driving Record

- Request a copy of your driving record in the mail.
- Go to your local DMV office.
Your driver’s license history includes the status of your license, driving points, citations, convictions, and traffic accidents. The best ways to improve your driving record are taking a defensive driving class, practicing good habits, and fixing citation errors by contacting the state DMV.
