Massachusetts Becomes the 4th State to Join State-to-State Verification Service Driver History Record


06/27/2022

AAMVA would like to congratulate Massachusetts on successfully implementing State-to-State (S2S) Driver History Record (DHR) during the weekend of June 25, 2022 and becoming the 4th participant using the new service. All migration activities have been completed on schedule. CDLIS and S2S services are fully operational now. AAMVA would also like to thank volunteer jurisdiction North Dakota who assisted with Massachusetts’s migration. Massachusetts will henceforth be able to use S2S DHR to perform its driver history maintenance related functions. This supports the goal of limiting any person to only one driver’s license and one driver history. Read more here.

Maryland will begin using the State-to-State (S2S) Verification Service Driver History Record (DHR) functionality on Monday, August 22, 2022. Tasks related to onboarding Maryland will be conducted during the weekend of August 20, 2022.

AAMVA is taking all steps possible to minimize service interruptions and will be sending alerts notifying states of Central Site availability throughout the process.

Now Available: Jurisdiction Considerations for Electronic Titling Whitepaper


06/13/2022

November 2021, AAMVA published the Electronic Titling Framework which identifies and describes elements for electronic titling. The framework focuses on defining what electronic titling solutions are and why jurisdictions need to implement a solution with standards, which promote interoperability and reciprocity. This information helps jurisdictions understand the basis of electronic titling, which eliminates paper processes in favor of electronic record exchange for all persons and entities involved in vehicle titling transactions.

This Jurisdiction Considerations for Electronic Titling Whitepaper provides 15 topics for jurisdictions to contemplate as they begin or continue their journey towards implementing electronic titling solutions. These considerations build on the Electronic Titling Framework by providing information, resources, and questions about the electronic titling elements identified and described. 

Now Available: Developing and Maintaining Successful Prosecutor Partnerships Whitepaper, Educational Slides, and Handout


06/13/2022

Developing and maintaining prosecutor partnerships can be challenging for motor vehicle agencies (MVAs) amid many programs and services competing for MVA staff time and attention. Sometimes the prosecution of fraud only becomes an MVA priority when a case is ready for prosecution. Waiting until a case is ready for prosecution to collaborate with prosecutors makes it difficult to determine who should be presented the case, what appropriate charges may be considered, and what additional evidence may be needed to support those charges. This lack of ongoing prosecutorial partnerships may result in unsuccessful cases, diminishing the enthusiasm of employees to identify and prevent fraud, as well as causing a loss of perceived integrity by victims and the public regarding MVA operations. The new Prosecutor Partnerships zip file includes:

Data Synchronization for NMVTIS State Vehicle Systems is Available


06/06/2022

AAMVA is responding to increasing jurisdiction requests to synchronize National Motor Vehicle Titling Information System (NMVTIS) data on a regular basis. These ‘data syncs’ have demonstrated improved data integrity, help jurisdictions identify and analyze any data differences in their current system, and contribute to requirements for current and future rewrites. The data sync tool compares, corrects, and restores NMVTIS data to match the jurisdiction’s data.
   
While working toward an automated process which will enable an annual data sync for all jurisdictions, we currently have the ability to perform three jurisdiction data syncs per quarter. We are accommodating requests with advance notice on a first-come, first-served basis, which will enable AAMVA to prearrange and allocate resources for the desired level of support. Jurisdictions with a planned system rewrite or modernization will have the added benefit of a data sync rolled into the implementation. To help states understand the process, AAMVA will distribute the State Batch Data Synchronization Specification document and will host an upcoming webinar. Please contact us for questions and to book your slot.
