  1. Call the WA Department of Licensing at (360) 902-3900 and let them know that you are from out-of-state, had a driving offense in Washington, and that you need your WA Drivers License (WDL) number.
  2. Once you have obtained your WDL number, follow steps 1-3 for Washington residents above.
Please note: the Department of Licensing (DOL) sometimes requires out-of-state residents to request their record via mail. If this is the case, follow these steps:

  2. Under “How do I?” (pink box to the right of the screen) click “Buy a copy of my driving record
