Your driving records, or BMV records, is 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 from unpaid tickets and more.

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

Getting your ME driver’s records can be done online, by mail, and in person. This short article shares how you can request driving records from the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).

Getting Your Maine Driving Record: Step-by-Step

Maine offers a few record types:

  • 3-Year Records
  • 10-Year Records
  • Electronic Records
  • Certified Records

Each carries different degrees of personal and driver information. Most reading this article will likely want to request the certified records as they are official documents you’ll use with DMV and related tasks.

Drivers will pay the following MVR fees for each record type:

  • 3-Year: $7 (online) or $5 (by mail or in person)
  • 10-Year: $12 (online) or $10 (by mail or in person)
  • Certified: +$1 to the fee
  • Faxed: +$2 to the fee
