add123.com (d/b/a AutoDataDirect, Inc) lets you look up vehicle registration information with a license plate number. That information is protected under the Federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act, however, I'm not interested in that information myself. I just want to know how they got it. Like who they contacted, how they proved that they were authorized to have that information, etc.
The reason I want to know this is that my employer does auto refinance. They're a client of add123.com already and I'm thinking that they could save money if they just got that information themselves instead of going through a third party.
Thus far I've tried open record requests to Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV), Vehicle Titles and Registration (VTR) Division and the Texas Attorney General (in the off chance that any appeals were filed) but neither of them have had any correspondence with add123.com.
