Governmental Agency Record Requests

If your agency is a governmental entity and you do not have an account, you can apply for an account through Online Services under the Additional Services Section and the Record Sales Services hyperlink. If a company is working on behalf of your governmental agency (carrying out the functions of that governmental agency) and will access the records, you must submit a copy of your subcontractor contract.

If your agency is a governmental entity and you already have an account, you can log in to your Online Services account and fill out a Record Lookup Request. 

If you anticipate high volumes of requests, you may be interested in our Direct Access service.

If your agency is a governmental entity and would like to request by mail, you must complete a Record Lookup Request for Governmental Agencies (BDVR-155) form. If a company is working on behalf of your governmental agency (carrying out the functions of that governmental agency) and will access the records, you must submit a copy of your subcontractor contract.

For driving records, include as much detail in Section 3 as possible. If you just need the name, address, or driving status, request the current record only. If you only want a driving record, do not complete Section 4 of the BDVR-155 form.

State identification cardholder information is also available. Complete Section 3, Driver Record information, substituting the identification card number for the driver's license number.

If you anticipate high volumes of requests, you may be interested in our Direct Access service.

Mail: Mail the completed form and any other required documentation to:

Michigan Department of State
Attention: Record Sales Unit
