Why you must review your driving record

A licensed driver has the absolute right to review his/her driving record.  Such a review allows the driver to confirm that the information in it is correct.  The information on a person’s driving record affects the driver’s insurance rates.  The driving record contains traffic related accidents, arrests and convictions.  The accidents and convictions reported on the driving record determine the amount of points a person has accumulated against his/her privilege to drive.

How can you obtain your driving record?  The DMV refers to your driving record as form H6. To protect your privacy, the DMV allows only you to request a copy of your driving record, form H6.  This form is merely a computer generated printout of your driving record.
