If you need your South Carolina driving record, you can order it through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The South Carolina DMV offers certified and non-certified driving record, which can either show your driving history for a period of 3 years or 10 years. Your driving record contains information about your driving history, past traffic violations, traffic accidents, driver license suspensions and driving records points.
You can order either certified and non-certified 3-year or 10-year copies online, in person or by mail. To order for your driving record online, you have to visit the SCDMV website. You will have to provide your driver license number, your Social Security Number, your birth date, the issue date of your driver’s license and our address, as it appears on your driver’s license. To order by mail, download and complete a Request for Driver Information form (MV-70), then mail it to the address on the form. To order in person, visit your local South Carolina DMV and submit a completed SCDMV Request for Driver Information form (MV-70). The state does not provide free driving record; you will therefore be required to pay a fee of $6 to obtain your driving record, regardless of the way you order for it.
You can order for another driver’s driving record if you meet any of the following authorized uses:
- Government agencies.
- Employers and businesses doing background checks.
- Insurance agencies investigating claims and adjusting policy rates.
- Individuals with written consent
