Bulk Data Program

This section is intended for organizations that are interested in purchasing a bulk data file(s) or are currently receiving a bulk data file from the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).

The RMV offers the ability to purchase four forms of bulk data files: (1) the entire Driver License file, (2) the entire Vehicle Registration file, (3) the Accident File and (4) the entire Title and Lien File. These files are available on a one time, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.

  • The Driver License Files includes data pertaining to the licensee, license class and issue & expiration date.
  • The Vehicle Registration Files includes data pertaining to the registration, vehicle, title, and owner.
  • The Accident Files includes data pertaining to the accident location, vehicles involved, and severity of injuries.
  • The Lienholder file includes lienholder name, address, lien code, and lien count.

To participate in the Bulk Data Program the RMV requires that all RMV Business Partners sign an Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles (“Access Agreement”) along with additional required documentation for this program, which can be found in the Documents Section.
