Motor Vehicle Records

A motor vehicle record (MVR) is the printout of a driving or vehicle record. The manner in which driver license or MVR information may be released is regulated by the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (or DPPA), 18 USC 2721-2725 as adopted in Arizona law, Title 28, Chapter 2, Article 5.

The DPPA requires you to have a "permissible use" for requesting and receiving an MVD record that contains personal identifying information (e.g., a person’s driver license photograph/image, Social Security number, driver license number, name, address and medical/disability information). The Motor Vehicle Record Request form lists all permissible uses.

If eligible, you can obtain and print a copy of a record online. You may also obtain a copy by completing a Motor Vehicle Record Request form and submitting $3 for an uncertified record (three-year driving record) or $5 for a certified record (five-year driving record) by mail or at any MVD or authorized third-party office. Your signature on the form must be notarized or witnessed by an MVD agent.
