A proper Party of Interest (i.e. Driver, Passenger, Property Owner, Vehicle Owner, Parent of Minor, or Legal Guardian) may request a copy of a CHP collision report/investigation, without having to go to the CHP Area office where the collision report was filed. Print and complete form CHP 190 and submit in person or mail to your nearest Area office.

Photocopy your driver license or picture identification card and attach it to your request for a collision report.
