An accident entry will be put on the record of each driver shown on the accident report. Accident entries remain on the driver record for 4 years from the date of the accident.
Regardless of fault, accidents appear on the driver record of all drivers involved in a reportable accident.
The driver record only shows involvement in an accident on a specific date, the severity and the county of occurrence. It does not show who was at fault.
Insurance companies secure information from your driver record and other sources to determine if any claims have been paid out under your policy.
You can obtain an official copy of your driver record. There is a $5 fee for each record requested.
If the information on your driver record does not agree with the information that your insurance company has, you will need to contact your insurance company for further information and clarification.
