• Card Design Standards Committee

  • To update and create realistic and durable standards employed by AAMVA jurisdictions, to enhance the interoperability of DMV and traffic data records, and to provide a voice for the AAMVA community in standards efforts with other organizations. This aims to improve customer service and safety while emphasizing privacy protection measures. 


    Guiding Principles

    Members of the Committee need to:

    1. Represent the interests of their committee to the best of their ability and draw upon their expertise whenever possible.
    2. Represent not only the interests of their jurisdiction, but the other jurisdictions in their region and base decisions on the good of all AAMVA jurisdictions.
    3. Be cognizant of the impact standards may have upon the industry that serves them.
    4. Be cognizant of public perception and the privacy concerns of their constituents as progress is made toward interoperability of motor vehicle authority documents and other applications progress.


    1. Committee members must communicate with their peers to determine the standards needs for the AAMVA community
      • What DMV-issued documentation do you ask from non-residents and transfer applicants?

      • Regroup and prioritize results of findings
    2. Monitor process to maintain AAMVA National Standards
      • Technical corrections, clarifications, interpretations
