Tenn. Code Ann. Sections 55-25-101 to 104
U. S. Code 18 Sections 2721 to 2725
The Federal Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) was enacted in 1994 and amended in 2000. It protects the interest of individuals in their personal privacy of prohibiting the disclosure and use of personal information contained in their motor vehicle records, except as authorized by these individuals or by law.
The DPPA prohibits state motor vehicle agencies (or any officer, employee, or contractor thereof) from releasing personal information about an individual obtained by the department in connection with a motor vehicle record. It sets penalties for violations and holds violators liable on a civil action to the individual to whom the released information pertains.
In Tennessee, persons or entities requesting information under the authorization of this Federal Act may make application on the Vehicle Information Request Form. This form provides more specific information as to who is and is not authorized to receive this information. For more information see the Vehicle Information Request in this guide.
