Illinois Driving Record

The Secretary of State keeps records of the traffic violations and crashes accumulated by a driver while a resident of Illinois.

If Illinois drivers are convicted of a traffic violation while driving in another state, the offense will be included on the record as though it happened in Illinois.

If drivers are not a resident of this state and convicted of a traffic violation in Illinois where immediate action is required, a record will be established for them in Illinois, and the traffic violation also will be reported to their home state.

Illinois drivers may purchase a copy of their driving record at select Driver Services facilities. To locate a facility, a driver may visit, and click on Facility Finder.

Driving abstracts also may be obtained by submitting a written request to: Secretary of State, Abstract Unit, 2701 S. Dirksen Pkwy., Springfield, IL 62723. The request must include the driver’s full name, date of birth and driver’s license number, along with the appropriate fee.

The person requesting the driving record must provide proper identification. Driving abstracts may not be purchased online.
