  • FDR: "Fraudulent Document Recognition" Evolves to "Fraud Detection & Remediation"

    FDR TrainingBecause the FDR program has expanded to cover topics far beyond physical documents only, the "Fraudulent Document Recognition" program has been renamed to "Fraud Detection and Remediation" training. "FDR" will remain as the shortened reference. With training modules and supplements that address such topics as People and Actions, Imposter Fraud, Internal Fraud, and others, the new title more accurately reflects the subject matter that is available to jurisdiction members. Download the latest version of the training and see why many FDR components are critical to a wide variety of staff beyond the license counter!

    AAMVA has been hard at work to meet its commitment to continually improve and update the material in order to best meet your training needs. The Updated courseware package (January 2014 version) is now available to member jurisdictions!

    FDR Training for non-members

    Access purchasing information here.


    Although originally designed for, and extensively used by, DMV staff across the nation, these courses are invaluable to organizations that come into contact with driver’s licenses, identification credentials or secure documents of any kind. The entire course suite or a package of course subsets can be delivered to students efficiently within a variety of training strategies.

    Implementation Guide 

    AAMVA has developed an Implementation Guide that explains in detail how members can use the various formats and courses available to best fit their training strategies. In addition to explaining the many delivery options available, sample supplemental activities are provided that can be tailored to suit your objectives. Download the guide here.

    Level I

    This suite of courses introduces the basic techniques of fraudulent document recognition that staff can employ without the need for expensive forensic tools. By providing in-depth examples and explanations of the types of security features in circulation today, and most importantly, how to identify them, the courses provide the tools needed to flag documents for review that may have otherwise been accepted at face value as genuine.

    Because the courses include a series of printable job aids and “quick tips” covering essential concepts and document features, staff will always be armed with the fraud detection tools they need. FDR Level I's courses range from 30-45 minutes each (including a knowledge assessment at the end of each course). Organizations may deliver the suite as a whole or choose to purchase/offer only those courses that are of highest priority/interest.

    Level II

    Level II is a natural progression of Level I's concepts in order to bring document examination to the next level. The courseware introduces covert security features and develops student skills in the use of magnification, auxiliary lighting and UV tools.

    Although covert features are presented generically (a review of detailed covert features of specific documents is NOT provided), the course will provide a solid understanding of how to begin a second-level review in today's fraud environment. With this foundation, students can effectively engage with local fraud experts and document issuers in detailed reviews of documents important to their specific job duties.
