What is Form CRD-93?
There will be instances where you’ll be asked to submit your driving records. You may be applying for a job, insurance, or other reasons. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles would be glad to provide you a copy of your driver record whenever you need it.
All you have to do is to fill out Form CRD-93 or the Virginia Driver Record Request Form.
What is a driver record and what does it contain?
Your driving record contains information about your driving history. This usually includes your personal information that could also be seen in your driver's license. The driver record also shows if you have committed traffic violations or if you or your vehicle has been involved in accidents or crashes. It also shows if your driver’s license has been suspended or canceled.
What do I need driver records for?
Driver records are usually requested when applying for insurance. This allows the company to know how much risk you have as a driver, and to determine the premium that you have to pay the company.
When you apply for a job that involves driving, your employer may also request for your driver records. This is usual for company drivers, commercial truck drivers, school bus drivers, and driving school teachers.
This could also be used as evidence in court when you are called in for a traffic violation. This would show how responsible you are as a driver.
If your driving record shows unsatisfactory results, this does not mean the end for you. The record will show where you lack as a driver. When applying for training for safe driving, your records will show the skills that your trainer must focus on when teaching you.
