Driving records generally contain information regarding past traffic tickets, states The Law Dictionary. A person can search a driving record through the Department of Motor Vehicles in the state in which the license is valid. Some states have online databases for residents to check their driving records.
Aside from traffic tickets, a driving record provides individuals with the status of the driver's license, any accidents, other traffic law violations, convictions and fines imposed. It also reveals DUI records and how many points are on the driver's record, notes DMV.org. Also, a driving record shows if license is valid or if it has been suspended or cancelled.
