Driving records are one of the most important public records that we rarely see. Companies around us are using them, and our employers are using them. Having said that, how many times have you seen your driving record? Most people don’t even know what driving records are, let alone how to find them.
What is a driving record?
Driving record is just a record of every time you and your driving have come into contact with the government. Your first batch of drivers will test the results. Every traffic accident you have ever experienced, every traffic violation you have ever done, are there.
Many companies and organizations use your driving records when dealing with you. Whenever a car insurance company determines your rate, your driving record is the main determinant of its price. If you want to rent a car, then your driving record is very important again. If you want to apply for a company vehicle, work as a delivery driver or start trucking, your driving record will be used against you.
How can I get my driving record?
There are multiple ways to access your driving records, from the stupidly simple, to the absurdly difficult.
Online public record search
This would be the stupidly simple option. All you need to do is to navigate to SpyFly, enter your name, and select which state your driver’s license was issued (or any state that was issued in the past). An online driving record search is the fastest way to easily obtain driving records, and SpyFly can actually be accessed from anywhere on the Internet, almost any device that can access the Internet.
Visit the legal office
Maybe you are a lawyer’s friend. Maybe you just like spending money. Maybe you are a lawyer. In any case, this option only requires you to visit the legal office and discuss your request with a lawyer. Most legal offices will require you to pay for access to their advanced legal databases, which should certainly have a copy of your driving record contained within.
However, this has a big disadvantage. You’ll need to pay an expensive consulting fee for this service. Obviously, if you are a good friend of a lawyer, you can discuss this issue, but if you don’t have this contact, it’s likely too expensive.
Visit the local automotive department
Technically speaking, the DMV is the creator and curator of your driving record, and of course can access your driving record. However, if you can recall any visit to the DMV, then you are likely to think of long lines, tortoise-like service and many problems that have earned the title of “bureaucratic red tape, festival”. However, if you don’t mind spending a day or more searching for your driving record, then DMV is a viable option.
SpyFly provides consumers affordable, immediate access to public record information. Federal laws prohibit businesses from using SpyFly’s service to make decisions about employment, insurance, consumer credit, tenant screening, or for any other purpose subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC 1681 et seq.
