A driving record or motor vehicle report (MVR) is a detailed record of an individual’s driving history, including:
- Suspensions and revocations
- Traffic violations, traffic-related convictions, and accidents.
These offenses stay on the individual’s driving record for 3-10 years, depending on the offense and the state.
You can get a copy of your driving records from your state’s DMV, your auto insurance agent, or an online third-party program. However, in most states, you cannot access another person’s driving record without their consent. In addition, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, and Wisconsin do not offer access to any driving records.
