Florida Driver License History Report

ADD accesses driving records from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) official databases, the same source used by insurance companies and other businesses to check driving records. A Florida driving record provides information detailing a person's driving history, which may include driving violations, license suspensions, restrictions or other information. The Florida DHSMV keeps Florida driving record information on file for a minimum of 11 years, but more serious motor vehicle infractions may remain on a record longer.

ADD offers three options when ordering a driver license history: a three-year, a seven-year, or an eleven-year (Complete) report. Non-moving violations will appear on reports, however three or seven-year reports contain only infractions that have been adjudicated by the courts during the period. For example, if a driver receives a speeding ticket and chooses to attend “traffic school,” the license points and speeding infraction are considered "adjudication withheld" and will not appear on the three-year or seven-year report. It is important to note that insurance rates are most commonly based on a three-year Florida driving report. Complete eleven-year reports contain all driving infractions and correspondences from the Florida DHSMV to the driver, as well as any infractions reported by other states during that period. Serious infractions may remain longer than eleven years.

Companies must set up a corporate account with ADD to access services that provide personal information as described in the Federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act of 1999.
