To encourage drivers to be safe operators behind the wheel, a driving record is created the moment a drivers license is delivered. The goal of each driver is to keep his or her driving history report free from points, convictions and criminal charges.
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles employs a state-specific Points System. If you are caught breaking a traffic law, you will be issued a ticket. If you are in this situation yet disagree with the charges, contact a traffic ticket attorney. When a driver does pay for the ticket though, he or she is admitting guilt for committing the traffic violation. Once that distinction is made – and only then – will points be assessed to the individual driver’s DMV driving record.
Having too many points or receiving a certain number of tickets within a specified time frame will result in drivers license suspension. Your license will be suspended if you:
- Receive three tickets (moving violations and/or surchargable violations) within a 24-month period. You can enroll in a Driver Retraining Course to waive the suspension.
- Receive seven tickets (moving violations and/or surchargable violations) within a 36-month period. Your drivers license will be suspended for 60 days.
- Get three speeding tickets within 12 months. Your driving license will be suspended for 30 days.
Over time, a certain number of points is removed from a driving record. Read more about driver points removal on the Tickets and Violations page. To learn more about suspended drivers licenses and how to reinstate one in Massachusetts, visit our Suspended Drivers License page.
Even if you consider yourself a safe driver, you should order a driving record at some point in time to see what is assessed on your driving report. The most common reasons Massachusetts drivers order a driving history record is to:
- Find out how many points have accumulated.
- Learn more about the drivers license status (suspended, revoked, etc.).
- Verify which criminal charges are on file.
How to Order an Online Driving Record
Although you can order a driving record through the MA RMV, the fastest way to receive a comprehensive driving record is to order one through a reputable third-party site. A driving history report(also known as a police record check) will be automatically delivered to your inbox, and will include:
- Criminal driving violations (DUI/OUI)
- Warrant records
- Police Reports
Take a few minutes to order an all-inclusive driving record that can be printed out and used right away.
How to Check Driving Records From the RMV
The RMV offers two types of drivers records:
- Unattested driving records
- True & Attested driving records
They both carry the same information; however the True & Attested driving record has the details organized in a different way, and also has a validation stamp. A True& Attested police record is used in court.
The cost also differs between driving report types:
- Unattested: $6
- True & Attested: $20
You can check your driving record four ways with the RMV:
- By mail
- In person
- By phone
Visit the Driving Record – Introduction webpage and follow the directions to order a police record check. Only online can you order both types of driving records. The RMV accepts MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards.
To order a True & Attested driving record, fill out a Request for Driving Record Form 21080 and mail it to:
Court Records PO Box 55896 Boston, MA 02205
Include a check made payable to the MA RMV for $20.
All MA drivers may head to their nearest RMV location, book an appointment, and request a True & Attested driving record. The cost is $20, and the RMV accepts cash, check, most major debit cards, and the following credit cards:
- American Express
If you live outside of MA or in area codes 339, 617, 781 or 857, call: 857-368-8000
If you live in other areas of Massachusetts, call: 800-858-3926
The RMV will accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards over the phone.
