uhhh of course they can…how do they find out who to give you an insurance quote if they can't look up driving records?
IF your insurance company is giving you the lowest quote possible no matter WHOSE driving record? Then looking of driving records is sort of a moot point.
Driving records can be printed out at the DMV, you can simply request new applicants supply their own copy of their driving record.
But if the insurance company doesn't care? do you?
I think your agent is blowing smoke at you… find a new one.
