How do you find out how many traffic violations you have gotten in the past?

Simply go to your local DMV office and take along your current driver's license and they will be glad to tell you how many past violations you have. Yes, do this...unless you have a warrant. If you have a warrant they will arrest you right then and there. I would suggest you CALL your local DMV or order your driving record. You can order your driving record online in most cases and you should only have to type in your state and the words driving record to find the site for your location. Make SURE you look for the website that ends with .GOV to make sure that it is a government site.
