The abstract--a summary of the information in the record--bears a Time/Date stamp in the upper left hand corner showing the date and time that it was printed.

Some changes to a driver license record may be visible in real time, but most are done via batch processing after midnight. Even if some changes are immediately visible, the record is not considered complete until the following day when other changes may be posted to the record.

DMV's policy is to refund the cost of second or multiple searches of the same record as long as they are conducted prior to 11:59 p.m. on the same day. To be refunded, please advise [email protected] of the duplicate search. The credit or refund will then be reflected on the customer’s monthly statement.
