Important Information for Dealer License Renewal and Original Application:
A dealer renewing or obtaining their initial Missouri Dealer License must obtain a criminal record utilizing the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS). This site can be accessed at
Upon registering with the MACHS system, a personal account will be created within the system for you. The criminal record response will be sent directly to your account in the MACHS system.
MACHS will only retain the criminal record for thirty (30) days. After thirty days, MACHS will archive the record and a new criminal record request must be made.
You must retrieve the results from your account and provide them with your renewal application.
A name-based criminal history record is required for each owner listed on the dealer license application and must have been issued within six months of the issuance or renewal of the dealer license.
