Your driving records, or DMV records, are the state’s collection of your driving history. Your driving history can include anything from a vehicle’s registration and license status to point violations like unpaid tickets. Getting your AZ driver’s records can be done online, in person, and by mail.

This short article shares how you can request your driving records in Arizona.

Getting Your Arizona Driving Records: Step-by-Step

There are two types of driving records:

  • Official
  • Unofficial

Official Arizona driving records are obtained at a local AZ MVD or by official mail. You may also request your records through online services – this shows violations and other items on your records but cannot be used with official DMV business.

Arizona offers four driving records types:

  • 39-month uncertified
  • 39-month certified
  • 5-year uncertified
  • 5-year certified

Unofficial records can be found through third-party services. These aren’t admissible for official business but can help you understand what’s going on with things like if you have lurking tickets, driving points, endorsements, and the like.
