Law enforcement has complete authority over your driving record. It doesn’t matter if it’s short or lengthy; knowing your record is important because it gives information about the size of the penalty. The driving records contain all information on traffic offences, accidents, fee payment history, and driver’s licence suspension. It also includes details such as the type of violation and the date on which it occurred.
Getting your Driver History
The history of points you acquired as a result of violations will be permanently recorded on your driving record, and these points can result in serious consequences such as the suspension of your New Jersey driver’s licence, an increase in insurance rates, and significant fines.
Aside from you, your driving record can be accessed by a variety of other persons or authorities, including an insurance company, an attorney, law enforcement agency, and an employer. You have three options for getting a copy of your driving record: in person, by mail, or online.
The first step in requesting or viewing a non-certified record of yours online is to register with the NJ MVC (Motor Vehicle Commission). You must submit information such as your zip code, SSN (Social Security Number), and driver’s licence number in order to register. After your identification has been validated, you will be given a New Jersey MVC user ID.
The next step is to log onto MyMVC website and submit the following details:
- This is the USER ID that you got in the previous stage.
- The last four digits of your Social Security number.
- The number on your driver’s licence.
After this, you can select the type of record that you want to access and complete the payment of $15 as a fee.
You can go this route if you don’t need a copy of your driver’s record right now. A form for requesting a driver’s history can be found on the NJ MVC’s official website. You must first complete this form. Along with the completed form, you must mail a copy of your driver’s licence and a $15 check to the NJ MVC (Motor Vehicle Commission) address listed on their official website.
This method is the greatest after you are comfortable and patient enough to visit a motor vehicle commission office in your area. You must bring all of the information indicated in the previous two methods of acquiring a copy of your driver record with you. Payment can be made in person at the office using a credit/debit card or a check.
Visit the NJ MVC’s official website for more information and guidelines. Seeing the flashing lights of police cars in your rearview mirror is never a good experience. As a result, it is important to keep track of your driving record and pay any fines that may have accrued.
