• Commercial Skills Test Information Management System (CSTIMS)

  • The Commercial Skills Test Information Management System (CSTIMS) is an Internet-based tool that provides a consistent way to track the scheduling and entry of test results for commercial skills tests by jurisdiction and third-party examiners.

    CSTIMS enforces jurisdiction-defined rules to manage commercial driver's license (CDL) skills testing and alerts various parties when circumstances are encountered that may require investigation to determine if fraud has occurred. Additionally, CSTIMS produces reports that can be reviewed for patterns of potential fraud.

    Webinar on Integrating CSTIMS with Jurisdiction Driver Records

    Many current and potential CSTIMS users have requested the capability to reduce manual entry by interfacing CSTIMS with jurisdiction driver records.  Specifically, the abilities to extract Applicant information from jurisdiction databases and import test results.

    On December 13, 2012, AAMVA presented a webinar on AAMVA’s concept for doing this including the data elements to be imported/exported to solicit feedback and ensure no data was missing.  NOTE:  the presentation provided below includes the data identified during the call that should have been included.

    Webinars on CSTIMS and the Final Permit Rule

    The "Final Permit Rule" (commercial driver's license testing and commercial learner's permit standards) issued May 9, 2011, includes many requirements that can best be satisfied by an automated system. On June 14 and June 17, 2012, AAMVA presented webinars on CSTIMS, a web-based system that helps jurisdictions monitor CDL skills test and identify potential incidences of fraud. CSTIMS can assist jurisdictions in satisfying some of the provisions from the "Final Permit Rule". The webinars highlight CSTIMS' flexibility to incorporate jurisdictions defined business rules.
