The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) is the state agency responsible for driving records. It works like a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) in other states. The agency calls these reports abstracts and offers them to individuals and companies who need the information. However, they do require that all requestors comply with strict Driver Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) laws.
The state has a versatile system allowing requestors to get copies online, through the mail, and at approved agencies. They offer certified records for the entire time a person has held a driver's license or a 5-year report. Both copies cost the same amount.
These driver abstracts contain personally identifiable information (PII) such as the driver's full name, address, social security number, driver's license number, date of birth, medical information (CDL), and physical description. They also contain accidents, moving violations, traffic violations, license status, points, license suspensions, revocations, endorsements, and restrictions.
The state allows requestors a few ways to get copies of driving history abstracts. First, they have set up an online system so people can easily get a copy of their own report with the following information:
Requestors can also get copies through the mail by downloading the application for driver history abstract (form DO-21) and returning it with a copy of their NJ driver's license and payment by check or money order. The information must be submitted to:
New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission
225 East State Street
PO Box 142
Trenton, NJ 08666-0142
Those needing reports can also get them by visiting an authorized agency in person. They must bring payment, a valid ID, and the completed application. When visiting in person, they can pay by cash, check, money order, credit card, or debit card.
Insurance companies often use these reports to set insurance rates or decide whether or not to insure drivers. They may also be used for background checks for employment.
The New Jersey MVC offers two different types of reports. One is a complete record, and one is a 5-year record. Requestors can get a copy of either a certified or non-certified record for $15 each. For other types of reports, a surcharge may apply.
New Jersey takes driving laws very seriously and is quick to point out that driving is a privilege, not a right. Some examples of their driving laws directly from their driver's manual state:
Drivers need to be 18 years old to apply for an unrestricted basic license. Teens, age 16-18 may apply for a permit or probationary license to begin driving.

Personal information will be on it, such as name, address, date of birth, accident history, citations, criminal driving offenses such as DUIs, license status, and points. Requestors can get this report in certified or non-certified versions.
The 5-year driving history abstract will contain all the same information as the report above, but it will only go back five years. This report may be obtained in certified or non-certified versions.
Criminals driving offenses in the state are serious crimes that usually result in big fines, jail time, a driver's license suspension or revocation, and sometimes court-ordered punishments like defensive driving program attendance. Some examples of criminal driving offenses in New Jersey are:
