The National Driver Register (NDR) is a central repository of information on individuals whose privilege to drive has been revoked, suspended, canceled or denied or who have been convicted of serious traffic-related offenses. The records maintained at the NDR consist of identification information including name, date of birth, gender, driver license number, and reporting State. All of the substantive information, the reason for the suspension or conviction and associated dates, resides in the reporting State.

State driver licensing officials query the NDR to determine if an individual's license or privilege has been withdrawn by any other State. Other authorized users have access to NDR for transportation safety purposes. All 50 States and the District of Columbia participate in the NDR. The system is also referred to as the Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS).

The National Driver Registry record tells you which states your licenses has been revoked or suspended; while your sate records helps you find out what you need to do to get your license reinstated.
