A driver license record (DLR) may be requested from the Idaho Transportation Department if the following information is provided:

  • A written request along with driver information and a $7.00 fee (per record requested). The record can be certified for an additional $14.00 fee.
  • Three identifiers are used to select the proper record--at least two must match to get a successful "hit" using the following; NAME, DRIVER'S LICENSE NUMBER, DATE OF BIRTH.
  • The Idaho driver license number may be a nine-digit, alpha-numeric number starting with two alpha characters followed by six numerical characters and ending with one alpha character. Previous Idaho license numbers began with 910, 920, or 940 assigned by the sheriffs' office, or a social security number.

A driver license record and supporting document packet may also be requested for a $14.00 fee. Requesters need to specify what documents are needed. If you need a certified driver packet, the written request must include the date of incident and a $28.00 fee.
