Driver/Vehicle Transcripts (Record Request)

Need a copy of your driving record? With Record Request, you can view your driver or vehicle transcript and/or have it mailed to you. Transcripts that are mailed are considered official copies and can be certified for an additional fee. The fee charged varies depending on whether the transcript is to be viewed and/or mailed, and certified.

The types of transcripts available are:

  • Driver/Personal Use - For your personal use only; up to 11 years of your driving history
  • Driver/Employment - Contains up to 7 years of driving history; may be issued to employers, prospective employers or their authorized agents who request a copy of their employee's or prospective employee's driving record.
  • Driver/Insurance - A summary of your driving record for insurance purposes; up to a 5-year record
  • Driver/Habitual Offender Restoration - Used to petition the court for restoration of your driver's license; up to a 11-year record
  • Vehicle/Personal Use

License Reinstatement Information (Compliance Summary)

Use the Compliance Summary to find out the specific information necessary to have your Virginia driver and/or registration privileges reinstated. The information includes:

  • Outstanding fees owed to DMV
  • Documentation required
  • Dates of any active suspension and/or revocation period
  • Pending requirements on outstanding suspensions/cancellations
  • Contact information to other entities, such as courts

DISCLAIMER: The compliance summary is not an official transcript of a person's driving record. It is a courtesy summary designed to assist in complying with the requirements associated with orders of revocation, suspension, disqualification or cancellation as of the date listed at the top of the compliance summary. To provide the court and other entities with detailed information on a person's driving history, the compliance summary should be accompanied by a driver transcript.
