CDL points are detailed on an individual's driving history report, which can be obtained from a state Department of Motor Vehicles office. Most states have a small fee to access a driving record.
Some states, such as New York, have several methods for obtaining a driving record. New York allows drivers to request a driving record online, by mail, in person or by phone. Various fees apply, depending on the method used. To obtain the license through any of these methods, a state drivers license, non-driver ID or learner permit is required. Also, it is necessary to provide a Social Security number and a payment for the record. Many of the forms for requesting a driving record are located online, ready to be printed and mailed or brought to the DMV in person.
As of 2015, other states, such as Idaho, have fewer ways to obtain a driving record. In Idaho, a driving record may only be obtained with a written request. The name, driver's license number and date of birth for the record being requested are also required. A packet with all the documents required to request a driving record is offered at an additional fee. The request form may also be downloaded and mailed in, and it must adhere to the provided instructions.
