How much does it cost to order an MVR?
Each MVR report ordered costs $5 plus the state fee. Please keep in mind that the state fee for an MVR order varies by state and may change without notice. Each new corporate account requires a $100 onetime setup fee that includes account creation, importing of driver information, manager training and ongoing support.
What type of information can I expect to find in an MVR?
It is important to note that the specific information reported in an MVR may vary by state. However, you can generally expect to find information such as a points history, any driving violations and convictions, license status, and possibly personal information such as name, date of birth, and height and weight.
What do I need to provide to successfully order an MVR report?
First and foremost, you need to provide the correct driver’s license number for each driver queried. If an incorrect driver’s license number is used to order an MVR and the query produces an MVR report for a different person, an order fee will still be charged. Some states do not adhere to a driver validation process. If the driver’s license number is incorrect, but other information such as the date of birth and first and last name are correct, the MVR report produced may still be for the wrong person. It is extremely important to ensure each driver’s license number is accurate.
Can we receive a bill detailing each MVR ordered, including all charges?
Unfortunately, MVR billing is not customizable or exportable to programs like Excel. We are unable to produce an itemized bill for MVR orders. All MVR billing is summary billing and will simply state the total price and the number of MVRs ordered, not which drivers for whom the MVRs were ordered or any other details related to fees.
Are MVRs easy to read?
For the most part, yes. However, sometimes MVR codes are not easily interpretable or consistent across states. If you need help making sense of an MVR, just give us a call!
Can I use state-assigned MVR point values to compare drivers across states?
This is not recommended because not all states assign the same point values to driving violations. It is best to use Driver’s Alert’s standardized scoring system to fairly compare driving records from different states.
Does Driver's Alert alter MVR reports or state-assigned points?
No, Driver’s Alert does not alter any information provided in an MVR report. Instead, Driver’s Alert provides a system to normalize MVR scoring for states that assign different point values for the same violations.
