Wisconsin Driver Record Application
Make sure you know what information is on your driving record. This helps ensure you know if you are at risk of getting your license suspended. Your Wisconsin License will be suspended if you accumulate 12 or more points within a 12 month period. If you are using a probationary driver's license, an instruction permit or have never been issued a license, you will receive a 6 month suspension by accumulating 12-30 points. If you accumulate more than 30 points, your driver's license will be suspended for one year.
Regular Wisconsin driver's licenses and CDL licenses will be suspended based on the following point structure:
- 12-16 points: 2 month suspension
- 17-22 points: 4 month suspension
- 23-30 points: 6 month suspension
- More than 30 points: 1 year suspension
By reviewing your Wisconsin driving record, you have the opportunity to determine how many points have been assessed against you. You can reduce your point total by 3 points by attending a state-approved traffic safety course. However, you can only do this one time per three-year period.
Purchase Your Wisconsin Driver Record
The state of Wisconsin has a online application you can submit to get an abstract of your driving record. The abstract contains your driving history for a specific time period. Keep in mind that most entries on a driving record only remain for five years (except for serious offenses or alcohol related convictions which remain on your record for 55 years).
You will need the following to purchase your record:
- Wisconsin driver's license number or Wisconsin ID card number
- Last 4 digits of your social security number
- Date of birth
- $5 fee which can be made with a valid credit or debit card, ACH payment, or eCheck. If you pay with a credit or debit card, you will also be charged a convenience fee.
If you do not know your driver's license number, you will need to provide your full name, complete social security number and birthday.
