Montana MVR

A person's driving history in Montana is publicly available in their MVR or Montana Motor Vehicle Record. Employers, insurance providers, and other interested parties can look up a person's driving history on the MVR. In addition, the Montana Department of Justice can also provide you with the MVR. 

The following details are included in the Montana MVR: 


Montana MVR



  • The driver's name, date of birth, and driver's license number
  • The driver's address
  • The driver's history of traffic violations, accidents, and license suspensions
  • The driver's history of traffic tickets
  • The driver's history of DUI convictions
  • The driver's commercial driving history (if applicable)


Employers, insurance providers, and other interested parties can check a person's driving history using the Montana MVR. Both employers and insurance firms can use the MVR to help them with rate-setting. Before signing a business agreement or leasing a car, a person's driving history can also be checked on the MVR. Anywhere in Montana, including Billings, Missoula, and Great Falls, you can conduct an MVR.


Montana Driving Records


The Montana Department of Justice maintains driving records (DOJ). The DOJ must maintain all official state records, including driving records. In Montana, a copy of someone else's driving record may be requested by anyone as it is a matter of public record

In Montana (MT), there are two different kinds of driving records: 


  1. Official driving record - This is a complete record of someone's driving history in Montana. It includes all traffic violations, accidents, and points accumulated.
  2. Unofficial driving record - This record is less detailed than an official driving record. It only includes information about traffic violations and accidents.


Employers, insurance providers, and court officials frequently consult driving records. For example, if an applicant is qualified for a job that requires driving, employers may utilize driving records to make that determination. Driving records are frequently used by insurance companies to determine premiums. Court officials may use driving histories to determine the appropriate sentence in traffic cases. 

You have three options for requesting a dmv driving record: online, by mail, or in person. Unfortunately, requesting a driving record costs money. 

According to Montana law, driving records older than seven years cannot be released


Montana DMV Driving Record


A history of your driving habits and behaviors can be found in your Montana DMV driving record. It is used by employers, insurance companies, and court officials to assess your driving risk. You can also use your driving history to change bad driving habits


Most driver's records will show:


  • Your name and address
  • Your driver's license number
  • Your date of birth
  • Your gender
  • Your height
  • Your weight
  • Your eye color
  • The type of vehicle you drive
  • Your driving history, including any accidents or violations
  • Your insurance information
  • Your employment information (if you are applying for a commercial driver's license)
  • Your criminal history (if you have been convicted of a DUI or other serious offense)
  • How long your driver's license is valid
  • Your driver's license points
  • Your driver's license photo
  • Your signature


Most driving records will also include a history of traffic infractions and accidents. You can utilize this knowledge to make your driving habits better. Insurance companies may also use it to calculate your rates. 

Your driving history is crucial. It is a result of the way you drive. To avoid paying more for insurance and to keep your job, keep it clean. 


Montana Driving Record Request


Although the word "driving record" is well understood, many individuals are unaware that there are two different kinds of records: your personal driving history and your commercial driving history. All accidents, traffic citations, and other offenses you have committed while operating a personal vehicle are included in your driving history. All traffic infractions, collisions, and other offenses you have committed while operating a commercial vehicle are included in your history of commercial driving. 

The Montana Department of Justice will provide your driving record upon request (DOJ). You can also inquire with the Montana Department of Transportation about your commercial driving history (DOT)

You must complete a "Driving Record Request" form, which is available on the DOJ website, to request your driving record. Your name, birthdate, driver's license, and social security number must be provided. Additionally, a $10 fee is required from you. 

You must complete a "Commercial Driver License History Receive" form, accessible on the DOT website, to request your commercial driving history. Your name, birthdate, social security number, and commercial driver's license must be provided. Additionally, a $10 fee is required from you. 

Contact the DOJ at (406) 444-4500 or the DOT at (406) 444-6130 if you have any questions about seeking your driving history.
