Policy Position on Personal Information Obtained from Motor Vehicle Records

In the interest of public safety, AAMVA supports the use of the Internet or any other on-line service to access personal data from Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs) only when adequate controls exist to ensure the data are used by authorized persons or entities legally entitled to receive them and that persons cannot access this data for stalking or other unlawful activities. Furthermore, AAMVA supports the sale or subsequent use of personal data from MVRs only when the person or entity receiving it agrees to control the access to such data to ensure the data are only used for lawful purposes. AAMVA supports legislative authority to enforce this policy.
