    Now Available: Data Synchronization for NMVTIS

    AAMVA is responding to increasing jurisdiction requests to synchronize National Motor Vehicle Titling Information System (NMVTIS) data on a regular basis. These ‘data syncs’ have demonstrated improved data integrity, help jurisdictions identify and analyze any data differences in their current system, and contribute to requirements for current and future rewrites. The data sync tool compares, corrects, and restores NMVTIS data to the jurisdiction’s data.
     
    While working toward an automated process which will enable an annual data sync for all jurisdictions, we currently have the ability to perform three jurisdiction data syncs per quarter. Beginning at the end of Q2 (March 2022), we will accommodate requests with advance notice on a first-come, first-served basis, which will enable AAMVA to prearrange and allocate resources for the desired level of support. Jurisdictions with a planned system rewrite or modernization will have the added benefit of a data sync rolled into the implementation. To help states with implementation, AAMVA has also created the new State Batch Data Synchronization Specification document and will host an upcoming webinar.
     
    Please contact Wendy Benson or Tom Manuel for questions and to book your slot.
     
    Data Synchronization:
    Q1 FY2022: AZ, WA, MN, MD
    Q2 FY2022: AL, NH, 1 OPEN SLOT
    Q3 FY2022: 3 OPEN SLOTS

    Reminder: S2S Driver History Record (DHR) Administration Training

    AAMVA is offering a DHR Administration training course on October 19, 2021, from 1:30 pm ET to 4:00 pm ET. DHR Administration provides states with new measures to improve the administration of non-CDL driver history (DH). Specifically, DHR supports the electronic exchange of out-of-state convictions and withdrawals, provides visibility of individuals that may have more than one DHR, and sets rules for maintaining DH in a standardized manner, all specifically for non-CDLIS drivers.
     
    It is recommended that attendees have prior knowledge of S2S and/or represent a state that is already participating in S2S. This course focuses on DHR Administration. For other S2S related training courses, please refer to intevista (AAMVA’s virtual classroom).

    AAMVA is now offering a Best Practices for Potential Duplicate Resolution training course on October 26, 2021, from 1:30 pm ET to 3:30 pm ET. Identification of potential duplicates is one of the most critical functions that S2S provides and is instrumental in allowing S2S participants to limit a person to one driver license and, where applicable, one REAL ID credential. This training provides S2S states guidance on the best practices for resolving potential duplicates identified for their state.
     
    It is highly recommended that you have prior knowledge of S2S or have already implemented S2S when taking this class. This class does not cover any other concepts for S2S, for other S2S related training courses, please refer to intevista (AAMVA’s virtual classroom).
