My driving record shows that I had an accident but it wasn’t my fault.

All accidents are reported by the DMV regardless of who is at fault. Our procedure is to obtain your motor vehicle record from the department of motor vehicle and provide the information to the company requesting the report. MVRs are maintained by the department of motor vehicles. If you feel that the DMV records are inaccurate, you will need to contact the motor vehicle department directly to look into possible errors or explanations.
