Drivers History is a company that maintains a database of traffic-related public records on millions of drivers in 17 states. That valuable information is provided to insurers and other purveyors of consumer data so they can assess driver risk.

Pioneering the collection of traffic-related open public records in 2002, Drivers History initially targeted the legal industry, which it still services. In 2006, the company realized its data would help auto insurance carriers assess driver risk, specifically assisting in underwriting and insurance adjustment claims support. Once the company began working with the top 25 auto insurance companies, the data it collected skyrocketed.

As the number of vehicles on the road continues to climb — there were 247.9 million in the U.S. in the July–September period alone1 — the need for Drivers History data continues to grow. This helps explain why the company handles anywhere from 15 – 30,000 transactions a day. It also has ranked on Inc. magazine’s roster of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. for two years in a row.
