Bulk Data Program

The Registry of Motor Vehicles (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.

Bulk Data files contain Driver’s Privacy Protection Act protected information, so your employees, contractors, and/or agents must have a background check before they can access this data. Please refer to Section 11 of the Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles, which can be found in the Document Section on this page.

There is a $7,500 fee for each file requested. A monthly invoice will be available to view and pay via the eServices Portal.

Who should use this program information?

This information is intended for any organization that currently receives bulk data files from the RMV. This includes portal users, IT staff, Security Administrators, and others that need to have the most up-to-date information regarding data, delivery, and file layouts.

Bulk Data is only available to RMV permitted users. Refer to Section 1 of the Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles, which can be found in the Document Section on this page.
