Can I look up the previous owner’s personal data? No, in accordance with the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994 (also known as the DPPA), these certain personal details cannot be disclosed:
- The owner’s and/or driver’s name
- Social security number
- Driver’s license number
- Address (with exception to the registered zip code)
- Telephone number
