Driver's abstract

If the ICBC driver's abstract is only for 5 years, how far back do the police records go for driving infractions? I asked for my abstract when I renewed my licence recently and asked if there was anything that goes back further than 5 years but they couldn't supply it.

When your drivers licence is run by us, we only see back 5 yrs of driving history. However, if there are police files relating to traffic tickets that are more than 5yrs old, we can see those files and the information they contain (if they're on the "PRIME" records system that is currently used). Example: collisions, street racing, etc etc etc

VPD enters tickets onto PRIME sometimes, which shows the person issued the ticket and the offence, but no other details. These stay on PRIME.

10-11yrs ago, we didn't have PRIME. I believe it got introduced in 2002, and didn't really come into full/wide-spread use until much later on. If someone is really eager, they could go through PIRS (pre-PRIME system in use) to find the information though. This isn't available in-car.

Does ICBC keep a longer record? I had to get 7 years of driving history from my insurance company in Ontario to provide to ICBC to get my 35% discount.

Yes. I've received an abstract from ICBC for court that was 7 pages long.

Guys....ALL your records are on file SOMEWHERE. In this day and age, records like this are not "thrown" out, they are simply archived. Your information will always be available, it's just how hard someone is willing to look for it.

So why would ICBC not issue me anything from before 5 years ago?

My favourite MVB driver's abstract was a history noting that the driver was deceased but that he had to contact MVB to renew his expired DL. If I worked at MVB and he did call, I definitley would have renewed his DL as his DL was not the only thing expired.

Sounds like a good question to ask them.
