Driver Privacy Protection Act
Under state law, motor vehicle, driver license, and vehicular
crash records are subject to public disclosure. The Driver Privacy
Protection Act, 18 United States Code, Sections 2721-2725
(DPPA) keeps your personal information private by limiting
who has access to the information. The department
automatically blocks personal information on your motor vehicle
and driver license records.
What kind of personal information
does DPPA cover?
What does DPPA not cover?
• As defined in 18 United States
Code, Section 2175: personal
information protected under
DPPA does not include
"vehicular crashes, driving
violations, and driver's status."
DPPA is designed to limit public
access to your social security
number, driver license or
identification card number,
name, address, telephone
number, medical or disability
information, and emergency
contact information contained in
your motor vehicle and driver
Can I request personal information on my motor vehicle and
driver license records be disclosed?
Yes, you can print Request For Disclosure of Personal Information Form
( HSMV 96104 ), write in the required information, and mail the form to the
department. This will unblock your personal information and allow anyone
requesting motor vehicle, driver license, and vehicular crash records to obtain your
personal information.
To subsequently request to re-block your personal information, you can print a
Request To Withhold Personal Information Form ( HSMV 96018) , write in the
required information, and mail the form to the department. This will again block your
personal information.
