What Information Can Be Found in Vehicle License and Registration Records?

License and registration records are typically held by the department of motor vehicles within each state. These offices maintain vehicle records, driver license records, car registration records and other items related to licensing or traffic violations. Though some states have enacted laws that restrict public access to driving and vehicle registration, most states provide the information for free or for a nominal fee. Generally, you may retrieve records by a person's name and birth date.
The type of information that you can find in license and registration records includes:

Driving Record

  • Status and validity of driver's license
  • Previous accidents
  • Points deducted against license

Vehicle (Car, Boat) Registration/History Report

  • Current address of vehicle owner
  • Previous owners of a specific vehicle
  • Recalls on vehicle

How to Conduct a Vehicle License or Registration Records Search?

To search for registration or licensing information on a car or boat owner, you should contact:

  • The relevant state's department of motor vehicles or similarly associated department. The only exception would be within the state of Hawaii, where these records are maintained at the county level.
