You may obtain a photocopy of the report that the other driver submitted to DMV by completing a Financial Responsibility Information Request (SR 19C) form and mailing it to the address printed on top of the form. You may also request the other driver's insurance information and/or a certification that the other driver was not insured (Uninsured Motorist Certificate).

There is a nonrefundable fee of $20 for each type of information requested and only one subject of inquiry allowed per request. Authority to release this information can be found in Section 16005 of the California Vehicle Code.
