Proving you have a clean driving record can help you access a job. Your clean driving record can also help you reduce your insurance rates.
But how do you access your online records through the Ohio BMV (Bureau of Motor Vehicles) for free?
Allow us to explain the process.
The Types of Record
Before we get into the process of accessing your records, you should note that there are two specific types of Ohio driving records available.
- Your Official 3-Year Driving Record
Your official three-year driving record includes all your information from the last three years. Information in this record includes driving accidents, parking tickets, and any infractions you might have committed within the past 36 months.
- The Unofficial 2-Year Driving Record
You can also access the last two years of your driving history by visiting the Ohio BMV website and providing them with your identification details. Accessing your records this way is ideal if you don’t require the information for any specific purpose immediately.
When you check your Ohio BMV records online, you will require access to the following information:
- Ohio driver license number
- Date of birth
- The first letter of your last name
- The last four digits of your Social Security Number
Accessing Your Report Without a License
If you don’t have a license or any identification, you can still access your free Ohio BMV records online when you receive a letter from the Ohio BMV. The letter will include an access code allowing you to view your records.
But if you require more information about your online record, you can find out more details for free by contacting SR22 Bond of Ohio.
All Incidents Included Regardless of Fault
It’s important to note that your driving record will include all incidents in which you’ve been involved on the road, regardless of fault.
However, if the record shows that you were cited for a moving violation and points were placed on your driving record on the same day, you were likely at fault. The driving record will also include all suspensions and driving disqualifications during that period.
