Driver Licensing

Commercial Driver Record (Abstract)

A commercial driver abstract 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 is used by commercial drivers for employment purposes. An abstract is issued only to the driver or to someone with written permission from the driver to obtain this information.

To request a commercial driver abstract, you can

  • Mail your request to: Manitoba Public Insurance, Driver Records and Suspensions, Box 6300, Winnipeg MB R3C 4A4.
  • Go in person to any Service Centre.
  • Fax your request to 204-985-8105 or 1-866-317-3267 (toll-free).

There is a $10 fee for this record. 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. A request takes up to five business days to process if mailed or faxed.

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