Background check question

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jul 09, 2011 1:44 am

Does anybody know of a relatively inexpensive, legit website or means to get an absolutely-thorough background check that will reveal every citation and speeding ticket, citation etc? I have a feeling I have some speeding ticket somewhere I'm forgetting considering I've lived in multiple states. I don't want to overlook anything that will give me trouble down the line.Thanks.

I don't know of a legit multi-state way, but the best way to make sure your don't forget something is to contact the DMVs of each state you lived in and ask for a copy of your driving records.

You shouldn't get in trouble for not putting down a ticket you forgot about as long as you made reasonable attempts to discover your full driving record. I would think requesting the driving records for each state you lived in should be enough. (Now, if you remember a ticket that is not on the driving record you should still put it down on the form if it falls within the background check question).
