Motor vehicle reports (MVRs) are more commonly known as driving records. These are simply records of an individual’s driving history and driving-related offenses. They include details on:

  • Points
  • DUIs/DWIs
  • Fines
  • Suspensions and revocations
  • Traffic violations, traffic-related convictions, and accidents.

Depending on the state and the offense, these infractions can remain on an individual’s driving record for anywhere from 3-10 years.

Most states only allow the person on record to access their driving records. If you need a copy of your driving record, you can get one from your state’s DMV, your auto insurance agent, or online third-party service. However, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, and Wisconsin do not allow anyone to access driving records, not even the record holder.
