The State of Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is the government agency responsible for driving records. They supply unofficial records online for individuals, and then companies, government agencies, and employers can also get certified copies if they need to. Auto insurance companies use these reports when deciding to insure motorists or set car insurance rates. Employers may use them for background checks.
The state has an online portal where individuals can enter their name, address, driver's license number, date of birth, and zip code and instantly view and print a copy of their driving record. They also have a subscriber service where employers or other companies can request frequent records.
RI driving records contain personal information such as the driver's name, address, date of birth, social security number, physical description (height, weight, eye, and hair color). If they hold a CDL, medical information will also be on there. Along with personal details, the reports contain license classification, all driving convictions, moving violations, traffic violations, license status, license suspensions, revocations, and CDL information.
The state has two ways for requestors to get copies of records. First, they have an online portal that individuals can use to get a copy of their own report as long as they have their name, date of birth, zip code, and driver's license number.
They also have a subscription service for employers, government agencies, and other types of companies that need to review driver histories. This service works online also.
Individuals will pay a fee of $20.50 for a copy of their driving report. They can view and print it instantly after purchase. They can pay using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).
Companies that need frequent copies of someone's driving record can pay an annual $75 fee to use the subscription service. These fees can be paid by a check or electronic account debit.
Anyone under the age of 18 must go through the graduated licensing program. When a person is 16, they can apply for a driving permit. The person must also complete 33 hours of driver education in a course certified by the Community College of Rhode Island. Drivers must hold a Limited Instructional Permit for six months before applying for their Limited Provisional License. They cannot have any driving convictions on their record; they must have parental consent, complete a road test, and show that they have logged at least 50 hours of supervised driving.
The license holder may drive without supervision in any of the following circumstances:
Some other laws that govern these drivers are:
Once a driver has held the provisional license for 12 months and is at least 17 years old, they can apply for their full operator's license.
According to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (DOT), some additional laws include:
"No state or municipal law enforcement officer or law enforcement agency shall engage in racial profiling. For purposes of this chapter, "racial profiling" means the detention, interdiction, or other disparate treatment of an individual on the basis, in whole or in part, of the racial or ethnic status of such individual, except when such status is used in combination with other identifying factors seeking to apprehend a specific suspect whose racial or ethnic status is part of the description of the suspect, which description is timely and reliable."
The state offers only two types of driving records. The first is an unofficial report that individuals can purchase online and print out. The second is a certified copy that users can obtain online using the subscription service or in person at the Adjudication Office.
The unofficial record will contain the driver's name, address, date of birth, gender, driver's license number, issue date, expiration date, and CDL information (if applicable). It will also show all driving-related violations and the court case ID along with punishment such as court-ordered drug or alcohol rehab.
A certified copy will contain the same information as the report above, but it will also include a seal from the Division of Motor Vehicles (RI DMV) to certify it is legitimate and a complete, correct record.
