New Update for online orders of Pennsylvania driving records

By Michael Klazema on 9/11/2013

Product update from backgroundchecks.comOur latest update to our web based order platform has enabled online orders for Pennsylvania. This means that effective immediately orders for this state should no longer be submitted manually by fax to us. And there is no longer a need to get approved through PennDOT. The state of Pennsylvania does however require a release form from the applicant for each order.

New online orders will be held in our system for 30 days, while we await the receipt of the release form from the applicant. If we do not receive the specific release form that is needed to process the driving record report order for Pennsylvania, the request will be closed out.

The specific release form and directions on how it needs to be filled out is available in our compliance center in an updated document together with the other driving record forms.You can fax or email the release form to: 1-800-835-2979 /

Please continue to take into account that it takes 5-7 days for this state to complete the request and send results back to us, after we have sent them the applicant’s release form.
