Requesting Your Own Driving or Vehicle Record
To request a copy of your own driving or vehicle record, you must complete a record request form. Individuals requesting their own record should expect to receive it at the address currently on file with the Secretary of State. If you would like your information to be mailed to a different address, you may do so by indicating that in Section 1 (check box) and completing Section 5 of the "Requesting Your Own Record" (BDVR-153) request form.
Please follow the instructions included on the record request form. If you need assistance in completing the form, please call 517-322-1624.
