Utah License Plate Lookup Options
The Utah Division of Motor Vehicles is the authoritative department to manage license plate searches and other matters concerning motor vehicles. The department has limitations as to what vehicle and license plate information is available. To begin an online Utah license plate lookup use the above form. Results may be limited depending on what state you are requesting license plate records for.
No data is released to any person unless they fulfill the preset requirements which are defined under Utah Law and the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act. Upon request, Utah motor vehicle records are released only to the subject of the records, their attorney or legal representative, law enforcement agencies, companies authorized to have these records, and other few entities. To use the above license plate search you must agree to the terms and conditions.
Some of the conditions for records to be released include:
- The records would be released to the person who submitted them
- If the vehicle is owned by an incorporated business, an officer of the corporation will be authorized to have access to the records
- Government agencies, which also include courts and law enforcement agencies
- When needed in relation to criminal investigations or in the event of any legal proceeding.
Motor vehicle records are available at standard charges. However, it requires legal verification by the record owner, lien holder, or anyone else entitled to have access to such records. A fee needs to be paid after formally subscribing through online title, Lien and the Registration Service (TLR) service. Submission of Form TC-890, which is ‘Release of Protected Motor Vehicle Information’ with the DMV, can also be another way of having legal authority to have access to motor vehicle records.
The in-person request charges are $3 per printed file set, $4 for the file to be printed and faxed to the owner, and $6.5 for a microfilm to be released in the name of the authorized subject. A similar fee structure is followed for telephonic requests of accessing motor vehicle records.
