What is the Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA)?
The DPPA is a federal law that regulates and restricts who has access to the information in Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records. Under the DPPA, personal identifying information derived from the DMV, including an individual’s date of birth, driver’s license number, social security number, home address, home telephone number, photograph, and medical or disability information is prohibited from disclosure to the public unless one of 14 DPPA exceptions apply.
Accident reports that include personal identifying information prohibited from disclosure by the DPPA are not available to any person(s), other than involved parties, unless an exception applies.
