  • Through AAMVA's Committees and Working Groups, AAMVA works with member jurisdictions to develop Best Practice documents and model legislation. These documents are designed for Chief Driver License Administrators and Law Enforcement personnel and staff.

    A "Best Practices Document" establishes the ideal approach for establishing and maintaining programs. A "Best Practices" is not mandated nor monitored for compliance. The guidelines provided in this document are recommended and provide a jurisdiction with details on optimal model programs.

    eOdometer Disclosure Task Force
    Final Report

    eOdometer Task Force Report Cover - small

    The eOdometer Disclosure Task Force has released its report on electronic odometer disclosures. The report was written under the understanding that NHTSA will be promulgating rules to permit written disclosures or notices and related matters to be filed electronic.

    States are currently unable to implement an electronic process unless they have an approved petitioned by NHTSA allowing them to perform an alternative method to the current rule. The report was drafted to capture considerations that should be taken when shifting from a time-consuming paper process to an electronic process. Flexibility was a key factor in developing the report in order to allow jurisdictions an option to implement within budgetary constraints.  The report also considers the specific actions within the process and the importance of authenticating the disclosure.
