To order your driving record by mail, you have to fill the  Driver License Record Request Form and include you official name, date of birth, Florida driver license number, social security number, the address where to send the record and the appropriate fee. Then mail the form to the Bureau of Records. After you have ordered for your driving record it takes about two to three weeks to process your request.
