1 Year Driving History - Connecticut

It appears our third-party safety screening provider, Checkr, was unable to locate proof that you have at least one year of driving history based on your current license. This can happen if you recently renewed your license or had your license issued in a new state.

Because at least 1 year of driving history is a required part of the safety screening process, your screening has temporarily been delayed.

But there's good news! This is easy to resolve!

Providing 1-Year Driving History

A 1 year driving history can be provided by either:

  • Displaying a driving license with an issue date of 1 year or longer, or
  • Displaying a driving history record

Here's how...

If You DO NOT Have Your Previous License

If you don’t have your previous driver’s license, the easiest way to prove driving history in Connecticut is to:

  1. Download a Copy Records Request (form J-23) form here. Check the box requesting Regular Driving History, fill in section 1 and sign the application. Include a copy of identification(copy of driver license, non-driver identification card or passport.) Mail completed form and a $20 check payable to "Department of Motor Vehicles" to:

    Department of Motor Vehicle
    Copy Records Unit
    60 State Street
    Wethersfield, CT 06161


  2. Once you receive a copy of your driving history from the DMV, all you have to do is submit a clear photo or scan of your driving history at https://applicant.checkr.com/.

If You Still Have Your Previous License

If you still have your previous driver’s license (or a picture / photocopy), all you need to do is provide a photo of that driver’s license to Checkr.

Click on “Upload Required Documents” to submit your previous driver’s license.
