Can You Obtain Your DMV Records for Free?

A complete driving record generally requires a small fee as dictated by the involved state. However, information regarding a current license can be obtained for free by contacting the local department of motor vehicles (DMV).

The fee to obtain a driver's license report varies according to the state the person resides in. A driving record includes the following information:

  • Traffic accident history
  • Driving record points
  • Traffic law convictions and fines
  • DUI public records
  • Status of the driver's license

The DMV website warns of applying for a free driving record online. Since the official information requires payment, the online alternatives may divulge limited information or be an attempt to steal the person's personal information.
