Drivers' Licenses, Motor Vehicle Registrations, and Titles
Updated June 2014

PS-160 (233.2.3)

This CSR determines whether a driver's license, motor vehicle registration, and title are considered “personal information” and mailable only at First-Class Mail, Priority Mail, or Priority Mail Express prices.

Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) 233.2.3*, prescribes that matter containing personal information must be mailed as First-Class Mail, Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express. Personal information is any information specific to the addressee.

The descriptive information contained in drivers' licenses, other types of operator licenses, motor vehicle registrations and automobile titles is unique, making those items personal information which would subject them to the First-Class Mail, Priority Mail, or Priority Mail Express prices.

*See also DMM 133.3.3.
