Request your driving record

Your motor vehicle driving abstract (commonly called a driving record) contains your driving history for a specific period of time. Most entries remain on your record for five years, except for serious offenses or alcohol related convictions, which remain on your record for 55 years. DMV customer service centers do not have a public counter where driving records can be obtained.
