No longer do you have to visit a tag agency to purchase a copy of your driving history.

Last week, OK.gov and Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) launched www.mvr.ok.gov, a new online system that serves as a one-stop shop for obtaining individual Motor Vehicle Records.

The new online individual application will allow users to purchase their records from their own computer or mobile device. The fee for a motor vehicle record is $25, but will be waived for anyone 65 and older.

"It's a lot easier for people to get a copy of the reports," said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. John Vincent. "It's going to be a lot more convenient for them if they're at their house or their business than to have to drive to Oklahoma City (DPS headquarters) or have to mail an application with money."

Previously, individuals needing their MVRs were required to physically go to either a tag agency or DPS headquarters to purchase a copy of their driver's history record.

According to OK.gov general manager Mark Mitchell, the new online system is an extension of the service previously only available for insurance companies.

"In the past, only insurance companies that were pulling records for re-rating insurance policies had access to pull electronic records without going into a tag agency," he explained. "This is an extension of that service that brings the convenience to the general public."

Users simply enter requested information (name, date of birth and driver's license number) and will then have the option to print off the MVR immediately or have a temporary link sent to a personal email address where they can reprint the record for up to 30 days.

"One of our biggest goals here is to make applications as usable as possible so that anybody with internet access can get what they're looking for without having to go through a help desk," Mitchell stated, referring to system's ease of use.
