How to Search Driving Records
Conducting a search for driving records is a great way to learn more about a person. Not only will a driving records search tell you about the quality of a driver, but it may also tell you more about their character.
Our people search finder allows you to quickly check on the driving records of another, revealing insightful information on their civil and criminal traffic violations.
However, it is important to know when it is appropriate to search for an individual's driving records to ensure the law is followed, and we go into depth as to when it is acceptable and when the law prohibits using our service to learn more information about a person's driving records and other public records.
Whether you want to find out more about the character of a neighbor, the driving ability of a boy your daughter is dating or simply want to check on your own driving record, using our people search service is a great way to do so.
Best Way to Search Driving Records
There are various ways to check on an individual's driving records.
While checking with the Department of Motor Vehicles(DMV) or visiting the local courthouse may yield some information about a person's driving records, doing so through these channels may be time-consuming, cost more money than necessary and still not tell the entire story.
For quick, in-depth and accurate results, try using our people search finder to learn more about a person in which you have questions about their driving records.

Our people search finder is easily accessible, without having to search endlessly through our website to find the right page. To make searching driving records as easy as possible for you, we placed our search bar at the very top of the home page.
If you want to quickly conduct a search to find an individual's driving records, simply type in checkpeople.com and you will see the search bar at the top.
To learn more about what information our service provides exactly, who should use it and the most frequently asked questions, simply scroll down and the information is presented to you in an easy to understand format.
Enter the information
The next step in the process after visiting our home page is to enter the information into the search bar at the top of the page.
You do not need much information to start your search; as long as you know the first and last name of the individual in question then you can start your search.
To give yourself an even better chance at finding the person in question more effortlessly, you can also enter in the person's location. While the most ideal situation is to enter in their current city and state, using a previous location in which they lived in the event you do not know where they are currently located may work as well.
Complete the process
Once you press enter, our software will then start the process of locating public information on the individual – which includes in-depth information about their driving history.
The process essentially does the rest for you and walks you through a three-step process including searches through police, sheriff and court records.
The entire process takes less than five minutes in most cases and provides detailed information, revealing crimes and traffic violations of the individual.
Access the information
Once the report becomes available, you can then view the detailed information.
If you simply want to view the driving records, then you can easily do so. However, the report will contain in-depth information on all of their misdemeanor and felony arrests, social media reports and contact information – in addition to the traffic violations and crimes found in the report.
As long as the search is legal and with good intent, you can do with the information as you wish, ensuring you keep yourself and loved ones safe from potential threats.
What a Driving Record Search Reveals
Many who use our service are surprised by just how much a driving record search can reveal about an individual.
Along with the basic information such as traffic violations, speeding tickets and accidents, a driving record search can reveal much more in-depth insights, such as the following:
- Suspended license
- Driving under influence
- Driving while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Vehicle incident details
- Driving without a license
Although these are perhaps the most commonly revealed issues found in a driving record search, the number of records go far beyond this list.
Essentially, the driving records one of our searches reveals can be broken down into three different categories, which are:
- Civil traffic violations
- Criminal traffic violations
- Police reports
Many – if not most – of people who drive have received a civil traffic violation at some point in their life. A civil traffic violation is simply an instance in which an officer of the law has observed an individual breaking a minor traffic law. A civil traffic violation can be a number of things. The most common civil traffic violations include speeding tickets, running a red traffic light, a parking meter violation and driving without a license.
A criminal traffic violation is a more serious offense, and they are also displayed in our people search service. The most common criminal traffic violations our service may show include driving under the influence(DUI) violations, driving while intoxicated(DWI), leaving the scene of an accident and vehicular assault.
Beyond the driving history of an individual, our people search service shows information about a person far beyond their traffic violations. In addition, you can use our service to find contact information of a long lost friend, determine sex offenders in your neighborhood and learn general criminal history of one of your child's friends – among many other insightful purposes.
