    The International Driver Examiner Certification (IDEC) program was designed as a result of the growing responsibilities being placed on driver licensing personnel. In 1980 AAMVA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) began the development of an examiner certification program and in 1982, the Certified Driver Examiner (CDE) Program was approved and was ready for jurisdictions to adopt.

    The Certification Program is designed to encompass three distinct areas: certified driver (CDE), certified motorcycle (CME) and certified commercial (CCE) examiners. The final component, the certified commercial third party tester (CTT), was established to help upgrade the level of training and to provide an avenue for third party testers to meet the same level of qualifications as jurisdictional personnel. The AAMVA Instructor Guides provide unit lesson plans and instructor visuals for teaching the core subject matter of the AAMVA IDEC training course.

    Annually, the IDEC Board recognizes and awards outstanding examiners through the Examiner of the Year.     

    **AAMVA does not certify testers directly.  AAMVA provides the certification avenue for jurisdictions to certify their jurisdictional and third-party testers. Jurisdictions interested in becoming accredited in any of the program areas may contact Denise Hanchulak
