Q: How do I obtain my Maryland Driving Record for my Virginia Traffic Court case? For my Virginia traffic court case, shouldI get a 3-year Maryland Record or a Lifetime Maryland Record?
A:Maryland Drivers should obtain a record from MVA in Maryland, but here is the twist:
Maryland will offer either a 3-year record or a lifetime record.
The 3 year record is standard, and it is very useful if a client has been clean for the past 3 years. The lifetime record might be better, but only if the client has had a very good record for many years. Even if the client has been clean for 10 years, a prior history of many tickets or suspensions would show up on a lifetime record.
For most clients, we just want a 3-year record.
