Secretary of State
Driving and vehicle records can be purchased through the Record Sales Unit at the State Secondary Complex, Secretary of State Building, 7064 Crowner Drive, Dimondale. If you do not have an account with the Department of State, you must complete a record request form each time you request a record (BDVR-154). Each record is $11 and must be paid in advance with a check, money order, or credit card (Discover, MasterCard, or VISA). A certified copy of a driving or vehicle record is available for an additional $1 fee.
Additionally, for only $12, you can purchase your own certified driving record at any branch office. Simply show your driver's license (no form required) and walk out with a copy of your record in hand. All offices accept cash, checks, money orders, Discover, MasterCard, or VISA debit and credit cards.

Michigan's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), MCL 15.231 et seq, provides that certain persons can receive copies or make inspections of most public records of public bodies upon written request. The person must sufficiently describe the records he or she seeks as the Department is not required to perform legal or other research to determine the nature of records sought by a requestor. The Department may charge a fee to cover the cost of complying with a person's FOIA request. Specifying exact search terms and date ranges will assist the Department in searching for potentially responsive documents and reduce your potential costs.
