Before using the internet was an option, the only way to file an Arkansas driving records request was to find an Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) Driver Services office. Fortunately, this no longer the case. You are now able to request and access this information without even having to leave the house. Here are a few different ways to obtain Arkansas driving records.
As always, you have the option of filing a physical Arkansas driving records request. To do this, first visit the Arkansas DFA website and locating an Arkansas DFA Revenue Office. Head down to the office, wait in line and fill out the form. Turn it in with the required fee and present your driver’s license, and they will print out the records for you. Another option is to mail in your request form and payment. This process usually takes one to two weeks.
You can also use their online driving records request form, which is more expensive than a request made in person or through the mail. If you choose this method, you can only access the records for a limited time and you must have the person’s driver license number, issue date and the last five digits of their social security number.
Fortunately, you’re now able to make your Arkansas driving records request through a public online database. All you will need to get started is the person’s first and last name and their state. If multiple records are returned, it may be necessary to enter their age and address to make sure that you’ve accessed the right records. According to the Freedom of Information Act of 1966 (FOIA), driving records are public information legal for anyone to access. You’ll be happy to know that requesting Arkansas driving records through an online database allows you to access multiple records without the inconvenience of filling out multiple forms.
Making an Arkansas driving records request through on an online database is a great way to verify the information in the records. But if you need the records for any official purpose, you’ll have to obtain them from an Arkansas DFA office.
