The Registry of Motor Vehicles recently announced that Massachusetts drivers can view their driving record online and download or request a certified copy. The new web options are designed to alleviate the burden on RMV employees. Last year, the RMV received more than 57,000 requests for driver records.
Driving records are sometimes required as a condition of employment or if the driver is summoned to court for a motor vehicle violation. Drivers have the option of ordering certified or unattested copies of these documents. An unattested driving record can be viewed online and downloaded, saved, and/or printed for $6. Drivers can also request a certified copy of their record, with the Registrars signature, for $20. The certified copy is mailed to the driver’s address on record.
In addition to accessing driving records, Massachusetts drivers can also view registrations, titles, and driver education certificates, renew Massachusetts ID’s, determine when their license will expire, and register as an organ and tissue donor.
