RCW 46.52.120 states and requires that the director shall keep a case record on every motor vehicle driver licensed under the laws of this state, together with information on each driver, showing all the convictions and findings of traffic infractions certified by the courts. This is then kept  together with an index cross-reference record of each accident reported relating to the same person with a brief statement of the cause of the accident and whether or not the accident resulted in any fatality.

The chief of the Washington state patrol shall furnish the index cross-reference record to the director, with reference to each driver involved in the reported accidents.

These records are said to be used exclusively for the director the chief of the Washington state patrol, the director of the Washington traffic safety commission and “shall be” for their confidential use of such police officers or other cognizant public officials as may be designated by law.

This is kinda creepy whey you think about it. Essentially every mistake you make during your driving career is being watched and recorded and if you think that they will not be used or leaked then I would think again. Consider the remaining part fo the statute:

After a review of your record, the director shall tabulate and analyze vehicle driver’s records and suspend, revoke, cancel, or refuse a vehicle driver’s license to a person when it is deemed from facts contained in the case record of such person that it is for the best interest of public safety that such person be denied the privilege of operating a motor vehicle. The director shall also suspend a person’s driver’s license if the person fails to attend or complete a driver improvement interview or fails to abide by conditions of probation under.
