MISC FAQS

Aren’t you the DMV?

No; you may call 801.297.7780, (800) DMV-Utah, click here, or contact your county assessor to register vehicles, determine vehicle taxes, or request forms for handicapped parking stickers. In Utah, unlike most other states, the DMV and Driver License are in two different departments.

Can I pay my traffic ticket at Driver License?

No; tickets must be paid at the court indicated on the ticket.


Why do I pay a reinstatement fee to Driver License if I already paid the court fines?

The court fines are separate from the reinstatement fee.  When the Driver License Division has withdrawn your driving privilege for any reason, a reinstatement fee may be needed in order to reinstate your driving privilege to “valid.”


How can I obtain a certified copy of a driving record?

A certified record is a driving record that has been certified to be a true, complete and correct copy of the record as contained within the files of the Department of Public Safety.  Certified records take 10 – 15 days to complete. Click here to see the forms needed for a certified record.

How do I request a report of an accident ?

You can fill out the DI-8 form and forward it on to the Driver License Division. There is also a $5.00 charge for each copy of the accident report.
