Making data requests

Learn how to request data from us and which types of data are available.

Existing data

Check our reports and data section to see if we already provide what you're looking for. We prepare free reports on driver license activity, vehicle registrations, fuel tax, and more.

Custom data requests

You can also request files or statistics that don’t already exist (i.e., the number of Honda vehicles in King County). We provide this information to governmental entities, private businesses, and individuals as allowed under federal and state laws.

Note: There are specific requirements for all data requests. Contracts, audits, and fees may apply.
