Driver's License

Driver’s license or governmental identification identity theft occurs when a fraudster presents your identification to obtain credit or law authorities.

You May Consider Requesting From The Michigan Department Of State (MDOS)

  • A driving record alert be placed on your record (PDF)
    • Provides notice to law enforcement that they should verify the subject’s identity when your license number is presented 
  • A copy of your motor vehicle record (fee is $11)
  • It is not standard protocol for the MDOS to change driver license or personal identification numbers due to fraud;
  • MDOS is also not able to resolve traffic citations that are wrongfully on a driving record;
    • Such issues would need to be resolved directly with the law enforcement agency that issued the citation
