The Internet Driving Record Request service allows North Carolina citizens to purchase a North Carolina driving record on line. A North Carolina driving record is a true representation of a driving history as it appears in the official records on file at the Division of Motor Vehicles. The requestor and the licensee must have been issued a North Carolina Driver License or ID Card Number in order to obtain access to a driving record online.

The driving record contains the following pertinent information:

  • NC Driver license status and expiration date
  • Convictions of the licensee
  • Driver control actions
  • Traffic accidents in which the licensee was involved

Note: Any pending charges do not appear on North Carolina driving records. The information appearing on a driving record is subject to change due to convictions, suspensions, revocations or cancellations.

North Carolina offers two types of driving records online:

  • Certified Driving Records: Primarily used for official and court purposes. DMV will mail this record to you within 10 business days.
    The Cost is $11.
  • Non-Certified Driving Records: Primarily used for personal or informational purposes. This type of driving record is available to you at the conclusion of this transaction and must be printed by you or can be stored on your personal computer.
    The Cost is $8.

For each driving record you request, you MUST have the following information exactly as it appears on DMV records:

  • First and Last Name
  • NC Driver License or ID Card Number
  • SSN or ITIN or U.S. Visa
  • Date of Birth

Note: Before you begin the request process, you MUST have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover Credit or Check Card handy. No other forms of payment are accepted for online transactions.

As a part of this transaction, you must select the reason you are requesting a driving record. Following your selection you must read - and accept - the certification of intended use which certifies that you have a legitimate need for this data, and that you are entitled to the information under one or more permissible uses set forth in the Driver Privacy Protection Act (DPPA). The information you provide will be retained within DMV records for audit purposes.

Any entity may request the driving record of an individual if that entity has a valid reason under the DPPA. Click Here to view the DPPA authorized usage list.

Note: You may cancel your transaction at any time by clicking the cancel button located at the bottom of every page.
