The federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) designates certain information in motor vehicle records as Personal Information.
Personal information includes a motorist's photograph, social security number, driver license number, non-driver ID number, name,
address (except for 5-digit zip code), telephone number, and medical or disability information. It does not include information on vehicle
accidents, driving convictions and driver status. Most motor vehicle records contain personal and non-personal information.
The DPPA also limits the purposes or permissible uses for which the Department of Motor Vehicles may release records containing
personal information. Copies of the DPPA and the permissible uses available in NYS are printed on forms MV-15DPPA and MV-15PU.
Some requesters may request a copy of a record only if they have permission from the person named on the record. This form provides
evidence of that permission.
Instructions for Motorists
The motorist is the person named in a motor vehicle record. You, the motorist, complete the top half of this form. Print your name in the
blank marked Motorist. Print the record requester's name in the blank marked Record requester. Then visit a notary public. In the presence
of the notary, sign on the line marked Motorist's signature and give this form to the notary.
After it is notarized, you may give this form to the record requester.
Instructions for Record Requesters
You may request a motor vehicle record containing personal information only if you have a permissible use as defined in the DPPA. You
may face criminal penalties and civil liabilities if you request a record for which you do not have a permissible use. The motorist's
permission is a permissible use. This form, properly completed and notarized, is evidence of the motorist's permission.
Keep this form for five years after you receive the record you requested.
