Disclosure Notification Reminder

When disclosing a vehicle registration record to a private investigator or an attorney, you must provide a notice to the vehicle owner, to whom the information applies, that the request was granted. The notice must comply with RCW 46.12.635(4)(a)(b)(c), describing you as the disclosing entity. You may not use DOL’s name or logo, or the State seal in your notification letter. You must provide a copy of the notification letter to ivips@dol.wa.gov within 5 working days of disclosure. Example notification letters are posted under the Contract Forms tab.

New Fee Effective January 1, 2014:

Businesses will be charged $2.00 for each record returned on IVIPS. The $2 per record fee will be included on your IVIPS bill after the change takes effect, and is in addition to the 4-cent per inquiry fee for the use of the IVIPS system. Government agencies are exempt from the $2 per record fee. This fee is pursuant to Substitute Senate Bill 5182 and RCW 46.12.635.
