Definition - What does Motor Vehicle Report mean?

A motor vehicle report (MVR) is an official automotive record that is held by the state. These reports contain information about a particular driver's driving history and license status. Any infractions the driver may have had over the last few years such as moving violations or license suspensions are included in these reports. Motor vehicle reports are often requested by employers when considering an applicant for a driving position in an attempt to determine if they will be a safe driver or not.
