There are several types of records that can be ordered to show your driving record, claims experience or an accident report:
Claims experience letter: This is your history of any at-fault claims made to MPI within the last 10 years. Most out-of-province insurers will request your claims experience (and often your driver abstract) to determine your eligibility for a reduction in insurance premiums. The cost is $15. You can request a claims experience letter on its own or with a driver abstract.
Personal driver abstract: These are typically requested to provide proof of non-commercial driving experience for employment or legal purposes, or when obtaining a driver’s licence or insurance after moving to a new jurisdiction. You can request that MPI send this information to you directly or to a third party with your consent. The cost is $10. The driver abstract contains information available at the time of request, including: name, address, driver licence number, date of birth, gender, height, eye colour, licence effective date, licence expiry date, authorized instruction, air brakes, conditions effective and expiry date (if applicable), licence status, test year, date first licensed, licence class, restrictions (if any), at-fault collisions, convictions*, suspensions, disqualifications and prohibitions.
*A discharge under the Criminal Code of Canada for certain driving related offences may be treated as a conviction under the Manitoba Highway Traffic Act.
Claims experience letter and personal driver abstract: The cost to request these items together is $25. Please see the descriptions for the claims experience letter and personal driver abstract for more information.
Commercial driver abstract: Commercial driver abstracts are typically requested to provide proof of commercial (Classes 1-4) driving experience for employment or legal purposes. It is available in Manitoba to help transportation companies evaluate the safe driving history of current or potential employees. This initiative, developed in consultation with the Manitoba trucking industry, enables the industry to manage their respective carrier safety fitness rating more effectively by providing a wider range of driver offence information. The commercial driver abstract includes all of the information on a personal driver abstract plus a five-year history of convictions under:
An abstract is issued only to the driver or to someone with written permission from the driver to obtain this information. The cost is $10.
Police Traffic Accident Reports: They are available to the person(s) involved in the collision or to their legal representative with written authorization. The cost is $10.
Please be advised of an upcoming change to the Driver Abstract request process:
Going forward, Driver Abstract request authorizations will only be valid for two years. This means that forms dated over two years ago cannot be resubmitted.
To assist with transition to the two-year expiration on Driver Abstract authorizations, we will continue to accept outdated authorizations until January 1, 2022. After January 1, requests will not be processed if the date of authorization is more than two years old. (MPI does not retain this information)
In addition to showing all suspensions, disqualifications, and prohibitions that are active on the day the abstract was printed, it also shows history for the following types of information:
Type of Information
Criminal Code Convictions
10 years from date of occurrence
Drive While Disqualified (HTA) Conviction
All Other Convictions (for example, HTA).
5 years from occurrence date
Inactive Suspensions/Disqualifications (including Roadside Administrative Suspensions)
5 years from end date of suspension/disqualification
If circumstances warrant waiving of DSR downward movement, the at-fault collision will also be removed from the Driver Abstract.
5 years from date of accident
