Disclosure of Information

South Carolina and federal law dictates that motor vehicle and driver’s license records maintained by the SCDMV may be disclosed in certain situations. The Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) keeps your personal information safe by limiting the circumstances under which the SCDMV can release this information. The DPPA limits the public’s access to your social security number, driver’s license number, address, phone number, and medical or disability information. The DPPA does not protect against information gathered through collision reports, traffic tickets, or your current license status.

For further details on the disclosure of information and the types of information disclosed, please view the SCDMV Disclosure of Information document.

If you have questions, please send an email.

Privacy Policy

Specific organizations, businesses, people, and government agencies will have access to personal information for limited time and very specific use. The SCDMV will provide additional information on its privacy policy if requested. If you have further questions, comments, or complaints about the agency’s privacy policy or policy compliance, you may contact the Privacy Office.


Due to possible legislative changes at the federal and state level and SCDMV policy, the information on this website may not always be current. The SCDMV will make every effort to incorporate any changes as soon as possible.
