    North Dakota on Becoming the 2nd State to Join S2S

    North Dakota is the second state to join the State-to-State Verification Service (S2S). They successfully went live during the weekend of November 14th. All migration activities were completed ahead of schedule. AAMVA congratulates and commends all those involved for their time and effort. North Dakota is now able to use SPEXS to perform its CDLIS and S2S functions. In the upcoming year, several more jurisdictions will also begin using S2S, starting with Indiana and Maryland in January, and followed shortly thereafter by Iowa. AAMVA looks forward to supporting them during their onboarding process. For the current SPEXS testing and implementation status, please visit: http://www.aamva.org/State-to-State/. Should you have any questions regarding the State-to-State Verification Service, please contact Pam Dsa.

    Iowa Implements DLDV

    Iowa is now operational with Driver License Data Verification (DLDV), joining eleven other participating jurisdictions. Driver's licenses and ID cards issued by states are regularly used as the primary form of identity. To protect the integrity of these identity credentials and to help battle identity fraud, AAMVA  operates the DLDV service which allows government and commercial entities to strengthen their identity verification processes. DLDV provides users with real-time verification of identification document data in a secure manner, protecting the document holder's identity, while providing the user with a match/no-match indicator for each data element submitted for verification. For more information, visit http://www.aamva.org/DLDV/.
