This form may be printed and completed when requesting a CHP collision report, either in person at a CHP Area office, or by mail.
In order to allow a proper Party of Interest (i.e. Driver, Passenger, Property Owner, Vehicle Owner, Parent of Minor, or Legal Guardian) to obtain a copy of a CHP collision report/investigation, without having to go to the CHP Area office where the collision report was filed, the following instructions will help you complete the CHP 190:
Collision/Incident Date: If you do not know the exact date, provide an approximate date.
Collision/Incident Location: If you do not know the exact location, list as much information as possible.
Driver or Owner: List the driver or owner of the vehicle. If only your property was damaged, please list your name and address.
Party of Interest: PLEASE CHECK ONLY ONE BOX. The most common Parties of Interest are: Driver, Passenger, Property Owner, Vehicle Owner, Parent of Minor, or Legal Guardian of an individual. If you are not sure you are entitled to a copy of the report/investigation, please contact any CHP Area office to verify whether you are a proper Party of Interest.
Applicant: Print your name in this box.
Number and Street, City, State and Zip Code.
Agency/Company: Applies to government entities or insurance companies.
Submit with applicable fees.
Please attach a photocopy of your state driver license or identification card to verify proper party of interest. If you do not include a photocopy of your state driver license or identification card, your signature on this document must be notarized by a licensed notary.
