• About AAMVA

  • Over the course of a year, the AAMVA Board of Directors, in partnership with AAMVA professional staff, developed a new Strategic Framework to guide the Association. Building on the success of the 2012–2015 Strategic Plan, the mission and vision of the organization were refined to clearly identify what is most important for AAMVA. The Strategic Framework outlines four strategic priorities that will empower the Association to provide its members and stakeholders the solutions and tools needed to accomplish their missions. 

    The AAMVA 2016–2018 Strategic Framework was approved by the Board of Directors on January 8, 2015.

      Who is AAMVA?

      The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization developing model programs in motor vehicle administration, law enforcement and highway safety. The association also serves as an information clearinghouse in these areas, and acts as the international spokesman for these interests.

      Founded in 1933, AAMVA represents the state and provincial officials in the United States and Canada who administer and enforce motor vehicle laws. AAMVA’s programs encourage uniformity and reciprocity among the states and provinces. The association also serves as a liaison with other levels of government and the private sector. Its development and research activities provide guidelines for more effective public service. AAMVA’s membership includes associations, organizations and businesses that share an interest in the association’s goals.

      AAMVA has four regions incorporated under its umbrella.
