LENS Notifications and Driving Records contain personal information about drivers. DMV has published general information about the privacy of its records at page Driver’s Privacy Protection Act Frequently Asked Questions.
Many LENS customers ask if they must have a driver’s permission before enrolling the driver in LENS. A LENS customer must have a DPPA Permissible Use (pdf) for a driver’s personal information before enrolling the driver in LENS.
Before enrolling a driver in LENS, pause and consider why you are monitoring the driver. Examine the DPPA Permissible Use (pdf). Do you find your purpose among the Permissible Uses? If, after consideration, you still doubt that you have a permissible use for the driver’s personal information, acquire the driver’s permission.
