    Depends on state laws mostly. restricted to most public information in most states in USA, Hard to tell in Canada, UK, Australia. But in USA the info on state data base that is 'somewhat restricted' means it is available for 'need to know' and that means some hackers with interest CAN OFTEN get the information. False insurance adjuster ID and passwords, Police and Fire/EMT query with faked IP address and simple bribe to DOT counter clerk can get info sometimes. Online lookup with a Crash Data query form can sometimes get the info- a cross reference to court system data base sometimes works and a couple states supposed to have insurance data base with license plate cross reference to insured presumed owner. You have a license plate number and money enough along with institutional corrupt police, court system then likely to get the information. Federal law enforcement might not like it, State police system might object some and maybe send you to jail for awhile depending on what you do with info if they catch you- car theft ring getting address for specific car to be stolen as happened a few years back will send you to Sandstone, others not caught still riding around free but not doing the searching anymore, a bit nervous about when statute of limitations over for interstate stolen motor vehicle charges no longer apply.

    Not legally if you're just a citizen looking for info. If driver almost caused an accident or is just flat out being unsafe, just report the plate to the police.

    Yes, assuming you are law enforcement, insurance with claim, or a tow company with possession of the impounded vehicle.

    I doubt the motor registration people give out that information to anyone but the police or a lawyer who gets a court order for that information.

    No. But if you are in a car accident your auto insurance company can run the plate and know who they are. But they will not tell you. The insurance company will send the other party a letter asking for their insurance information.

    No. You cannot due to privacy laws.

    Only if you're a cop, which you're not. And even if you were a cop, you'd need a legally valid reason to look that stuff up.
