The National Driver Register contains information about drivers who have had their licenses revoked or suspended, or who have been convicted of serious traffic violations such as driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Anyone can access this register and find out about your license status and any serious driving-related incidents in which you have been involved, including reckless driving and driving under the influence.

This means that local state driver licensing officials also have access. They typically search the database to see if your current driver license is suspended or revoked or if you are considered a problem driver. When applying for a new license, you can be denied the license based on the findings.

The register, however, only contains information that will point to a State holding driver history records. It does not contain the driving record itself.

Information about your driving record must be obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles in the State in which you are licensed.

You cannot get information from the National Driver Register over the telephone, internet, or by fax. It may take up to 45 days to get the information by mail.
