5-Year Certified Driving Record (MVR)
Authorized Third Party Providers like EZ Title, are authorized to provide motor vehicle and driving records, to eligible individuals and entities. An MVR can contain a printout of an individual’s driving record, or a specific vehicle record, depending on the type requested. Information is released only in accordance with the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (18 USC 2721-2725).
The FDPPA requires individuals or entities to have a “permissible use” when requesting and receiving any MVD records that contain personal identifying information, such as a person’s driver license photo, social security number, driver license number, name, address, and medical disability information. The Motor Vehicle Request Form (#46-4416) lists all “permissible” uses. The customer’s signature on the form must be witnessed by a notary public, or an MVD agent.
Under no circumstances may a person’s verbal agreement to the release of their MVR be treated as sufficient to authorize the release of an MVR. EZ Title will not release any information by telephone. Customers who would like to request the status of their suspensions, revocations, and court information on their records, may contact the Motor Vehicle Division’s Communications Unit. They can be reached at (602) 255-0072 in the Phoenix area, at (520) 629-9808 in the Tucson area, or at (800) 251-5866 in any other areas.
Identification is required for each and every Motor Vehicle Record request. Each requester, including a private individual requesting another person’s record, must provide proof of identification. EZ Title will not be able to process your MVR request for another individual’s records, without positive identification. If an individual is requesting their own MVR and does not have acceptable identification, as long as they are able to complete the Motor Vehicle Record Request form, the records may be mailed to the address on record (only).
