Virgini Dept of Motor Vehicles- obtaining records
I will tell you right now though, you will need a release form. DMV records are not public so yeah. Have a release signed and then go to the DMV. However, I am not sure if they will release them anyways but you can always check.
"Driver records have always been privileged information and cannot be released in most cases without the data subjectís written consent. Exceptions to the consent requirement are made f or law enforcement, other government entities, insurance companies, rental car companies and employers in cases where the employee or potential employee holds a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). "
The other option is to have the employee request a copy and bring them to you (my tech school did this) but I would check the law first and verify that is legal in your state.
