Need Your Driving Record…Now?
December 3, 2010

Driver records now available instantly online

Texas drivers can now order their driving records online and print them out immediately instead of waiting to have the record mailed to them.

Previously, drivers could order their driver record online but had to wait to receive their record via the U.S. Postal Service.

 Now, drivers can place their order using a credit card and their actual driver license, and then print out their record, which is available in a certified version suitable for submitting to a court for permission to take defensive driving. All Texas drivers, including commercial driver license holders, are eligible to use the online Driver Record System. To request a record, drivers must provide authentication information from their Texas driver license or ID and the last four digits of their social security number. Orders also require a credit card and access to a working printer.
