Want to know what's in your driving record? The Registry of Motor Vehicles says it's going to make finding out that information easier.
The Registry is announcing today that people will now be able to go online and view and print their driving record or request a certified copy.
With customers requesting more than 57,000 records last year from the Registry, employees are kept very busy, said Registrar Rachel Kaprielian. The new function on the Registry's website, www.mass.gov/rmv will not only be a customer convenience, it will lessen the burden on the Registry, she said.
For $6, drivers can view their record onscreen and download. For $20, a certified copy will be sent to them by mail.
Copies of driving records are required as a condition of employment by some businesses or in any court matter involving motor vehicle violations, the Registry said.
The agency says it is seeing usage of its website increase as it adds a variety of new functions, including the ability to view registrations, titles, and driver education certificates; to renew IDs; and to register as organ and tissue donors.
