state and federal laws dictate that motor vehicle and driver license records
maintained by the SC DMV can be disclosed in certain situations. The Driver
Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) keeps your personal information private by placing
limits on purposes for which the information can be obtained.
Your motor vehicle and driver
license records include information such as your social security number, driver
license number, address, phone number and medical or disability information.
The DPPA limits access to this information.
Information not protected by
the DPPA includes car accident reports, traffic tickets, and your current
driver license status. This information is not considered personal information.
Specific organizations, businesses,
individual people, and government agencies will have access to the information
deemed personal for limited use and for very specific purposes.
DMV will provide
compliance, you may contact the DMV Privacy Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
