Order a Driving Record by Mail
If you require a certified copy of your driving record, a request must be made via mail. Use the Request for a Driver Record application form to apply for a driving record. Then, mail the completed request to:

Department of Motor Vehicles
P.O. Box 944247 MS G199
Sacramento, CA 94244-2470

Check Your Driving Record with the DMV
Both uncertified and certified copies can be ordered at a DMV office. Fill out a Request for Your Own Driver License/Identification Card (DL/ID) or Vehicle/Vessel Registration (VR) Information Record application form, and submit it with the completed form along with your fee to the California DMV.
