Check Florida Driver’s License Status - All About Your Driving record in the Sunshine State

If you currently reside in Florida or have in the past, you should know the standing of your driving record in that state. When you check your Florida driver’s license status, you will have several options to choose from: three-year, seven-year, and complete driving record. Which one you select will depend on your reason for requesting it.

Three-Year and Seven-Year Record

The three-year and seven-year records are quite similar and will be the records most often required for review. When you order a three-year driving record in the state of Florida, you will receive the following information:


  • Driver’s licenses issued and their status

  • Identification cards issued and their status

  • Driving exams passed

  • Driver education history

  • Guilty verdicts on traffic violations in the last three years

  • Traffic accidents that resulted in citations in the last three years

  • Any open suspensions, revocations, cancellations, or disqualifications of driving privileges

A seven-year driving record will contain the same information going back seven years instead of three. Certain offences will age out somewhere in between the three and seven year mark. As a result, some offences committed within the last seven years may not actually appear on the record. The majority of both moving and non-moving violations will age out around five years. Suspensions and revocations vary but can fall out of retention during the seven years. Most other offences have retention periods longer than seven years.

Complete Driving Record

The complete driving record will mostly contain the same items as the three-year and seven-year reports but will encompass the entirety of your driving history, including items that would have aged out of the other reports.


  • Driver’s licenses issued and their status

  • Identification cards issued and their status

  • Driving exams passed

  • Driver education history

  • All guilty verdicts ever levied against the driver

  • All traffic accidents that resulted in citations

  • All open or closed suspensions, revocations, cancellations, or disqualifications of driving privileges

  • Department approved correspondence

Keeping Your Record Clean

The best way to protect yourself and your record is to keep it clean. Drive carefully and within the parameters of the law and you should not have anything to worry about. However, if you do find yourself afoul of the rules of the road, you do have a couple options available to you. First, you can plead not guilty and fight the charges. Second, you can opt to go to traffic school; you are not allowed to opt for traffic school more than once every twelve months or more than five times in your lifetime. All actions must be taken before the points are placed on your license, otherwise they cannot be removed.
