Uncertified driver’s record
An uncertified driver’s record (also called an abstract) is a print copy of a driver’s record for any driver with an Ontario driver’s licence. You can order a copy of a 3-year uncertified driver’s record online.
Driver’s records can be used for many purposes, are available as uncertified or certified formats and can cover different time periods. Check with the individual requesting the record to confirm which version you will need before you order.
To order a 3-year uncertified driver’s record you will need:
one of the following
- your Ontario driver’s licence number
- registrant identification number
- your name and address
- the Ontario driver’s licence number of the person whose record you are requesting
Make sure you have the following before you order:
- Adobe Reader to open and read the driver’s record
- a printer to print your receipt and the driver’s record
After you complete the order you will receive an online copy of the driver record to print or save. A paper copy will not be mailed to you. If you order a driver record but it is not on file you will still be charged the search fee.
