How soon do you need it, and how much are you willing to spend?

I remember when my father thought my mother was cheating on him, he paid $800 for a private invistigator - who in return, gave him pretty much any information about the guy in question.

Where do you live?

In Massachusetts the information you want is contained in something called a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information).

Access to CORI information is restricted to people who have a specific professional need for it, such as day care providers. Also, CORI info is notoriously inaccurate and misleading. So at least in Mass, take it with a big grain of salt.

Intellicorp, you will need to get a release.

Sorry, didn't catch that this is for you. You can sign your own release!

There are dozens of reputable providers who will run a background check on you for $25-50 depending on how thorough a search you want to do.

My company has a relationship with Safe Hiring Solutions, who seem to do a decent job, but there are dozens of other providers who will do just fine. Google "background check".

Can't you just contact the DMV?

Says Sachse is part of two counties.

and also here:

and Texas court state search:

If you have moved, some cities have similiar pages like this depending on privacy laws of your state.
Otherwise I would just use a service like US Search

Is the onus on you to do your own records search? Usually you just sign a release and the hiring agency does its own legwork. Couldn't tell you which records search is the best choice, though, sorry.

They'll all do a comparable job. Most will actually tell you exactly what databases they search at what prices levels, so you can choose the one which best fits your needs.

Asciident, I believe the poster is trying to ensure that he/she has his/her own record correct for purposes of disclosure before the hiring agency does their own search.
