Report a problem with license or registration fraud

How do I report license or registration fraud?

If you have evidence that

  • another person has a driver license, registration document or title certificate in your name, or
  • another person used your identity and DMV ID number from your driver license, learner permit or non-driver ID for fraudulent purposes

you must carefully read the instructions, fill out the Report of Unauthorized Use of License/Registration (FI-17) and send it to the DMV at the address on the form.

You must have documented evidence of fraud to submit a Report for Unauthorized Use.  Evidence can include

  • traffic tickets
  • personal checks that you did not receive or write
  • documents that contain your DMV ID number from your driver license, learner permit or non-driver ID
