NDR is a computerized database of information about drivers who have had their licenses revoked or suspended, or who have been convicted of serious traffic violations such as driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs. State motor vehicle agencies provide NDR with the names of individuals who have lost their privileges or who have been convicted of a serious traffic violation.
When a person applies for a driver's license, the State checks to see if the name is on our NDR database. If a person has been reported to the NDR as a problem driver, the license may be denied.
The State Agency responsible for issuing driver licenses is required to transfer identification information to the NDR on all revocations, suspensions, and license denials within 31 days of receipt of the convictions from the courts.
If your name is on the NDR database it may mean that your driver license has been sanctioned (suspended, cancelled, revoked or denied) because of a serious traffic violation.
Who can access the NDR:
- Any individual under the provisions of the Privacy Act.
- State and federal driver licensing officials.
- The Federal Railroad Administration and employers of locomotive operators.
- The Federal Aviation Administration for airman medical certification.
- The U.S. Coast Guard for merchant mariner certification.
- The National Transportation Safety Board for accident investigations.
- Federal Highway Administration for accident investigations.
- Federal Agencies performing background investigations for employment.
The NDR does not contain driver history records on every licensed driver. The NDR only contains information that will point to a State holding driver history records. If you need a driving record, you must order an MVR REPORTfor the State in which you are licensed, or have held a license in the past.
