Our nanny will be driving. How do we check the nanny driving record?

Driving records are very important, and they reveal more than just how well the nanny drives. A nanny driving record can speak to the candidate’s judgment, attention to detail, and conformity to rules. DUI’s and speeding tickets will generally give a family pause.

Many states have moved to protect the confidentiality of these records in recent years. As a consequence, third party requests for driving records are not available in all states and some states limit the detail provided to third parties. allows families to order a driving records report, where available, at additional costs. If the state requires additional paperwork (authorization to release data from the candidate) you will be notified directly by the search firm, National Crime Search, Inc.

Most motor vehicle reports (MVR) take 2 – 6 hours. Pennsylvania MVRs are the only exception, and they take 10 business days.

A family may request that a candidate visit the motor vehicle department in her state and request a copy of the nanny driving record directly to share with the family. There is typically a small fee for this assessed by the state.
