There are several types of records that can be ordered to show your driving record, claims experience or an accident report.

Personal driver abstract

Personal driver abstracts are available for a $10 fee. 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. A request takes up to five business days to process if mailed or faxed.

There are three ways to obtain a driver abstract:

  1. Download a copy of the request form and submit the completed form by fax to 204-985-8105 or 1-866-317-3267 (toll-free), or by mail to:

    Manitoba Public Insurance
    Driver Records and Suspensions
    Box 6300
    Winnipeg, MB R3C 4A4
  2. Visit your Autopac agent, pay the fee and arrange to have the record mailed or faxed to you.
  3. Visit an MPI Service Centre location and an abstract can be printed for you right away.

Payment options are: certified cheque or money order payable to Manitoba Public Insurance or credit card (VISA or MasterCard). If paying by credit card, please include your card number and expiry date with your request. If you require further information, call 204-985-0980 or 1-866-323-0543 (toll-free).

The driver abstract contains information available at the time of request, including: name, address, driver licence number, date of birth, sex, height, eye color, 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.

Commercial 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.

An abstract is issued only to the driver or to someone with written permission from the driver to obtain this information.

There are three ways to request a commercial driver abstract:

  1. Mail your request to: Manitoba Public Insurance, Driver Records and Suspensions, Box 6300, Winnipeg MB R3C 4A4.
  2. Go in person to any MPI Service Centre.

If paying by credit card, please include your card number and expiry date with your request. A request takes up to five business days to process.

If you require further information, telephone 204-985-0980, or toll-free 1-866-323-0543.
