Public Information Act

The Maryland Public Information Act (PIA) gives the public a general right to have access to information about the affairs of government and the official acts of public officials and employees.  The PIA covers many types of records with varying requirements for disclosure.  Records of the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) that contain personal information are specifically controlled by the PIA, and disclosure of personal information is generally prohibited, with limited exceptions.  Other MVA records, including, but not limited to, business licensing records and procurement records, are also restricted under the PIA.

There are many MDOT MVA records and documents immediately available to the public. Click here​ to view those records. You can order, view, and print your own certified and non-certified driving records through your mymva account​.  

Any requests for records or documents (including subpoenas, data requests, certified vehicle records, etc…)  not on the list of immediately available documents must be accompanied by a signed and completed Request for Motor Vehicle Administration Records.

Requests for records, documents, or information under the PIA can be directed to:
