How to Request Indiana Driving Records

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Your driving records, or BMV records, are the state’s collection of your driving history. Your driving history can include anything from a vehicle’s registration, convictions, and license status to point violations like unpaid tickets and more.

Others may request your records like employers, law enforcement, insurance companies, and others.

Getting your IN driver’s records can be done online, in person, and by mail. This short article shares how you can request driving records in Indiana.

Getting Your IN Driving Record: Step-by-Step

Here’s what you should know when requesting records:

  • Viewable Driver Record (VDR) – A basic record you can view for free through the IN BMV site
  • Official Driver Record (ODR) – A certified copy of your driver record in Indiana

Fees for the driving history report include:

  • Viewable Driver Record: Free
  • Official Driver Record: $4

You can request these documents through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles to get official, certified documents. Or, use third-party providers to get unofficial IN driver documents. These third-party providers can save time and hassle when getting your driver information.
