  • Now Available: mDL Implementation Guidelines

    mDLGuidelinesCover-2021 The AAMVA Joint Mobile Driver’s License (mDL) Working Group (WG) has been active around mobile identification since 2012. As the mDL evolves, the mDL WG continues to identify and address topics on which guidance to Issuing Authorities can be helpful. These new Mobile Driver's License (mDL) Implementation Guidelines represent the bulk of the current guidance, and points to additional resources as needed. 
     
    It is up to issuing authorities to determine the extent to which the guidance in this document is followed. Nevertheless, the minimum measures deemed necessary to achieve the above are labeled as mandatory requirements in this document (i.e. “shall” or “must”).

    Now Available: Data Synchronization for NMVTIS Titling Systems

    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 match 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 understand the process, AAMVA will distribute the 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.

    Now Available: Implementation, Rewrite, and Modernization for NMVTIS Titling Systems

    AAMVA can help your state to implement, rewrite, or modernize your jurisdiction’s titling system. This includes support for planning new implementations; moving from batch inquiries and batch updates to real-time inquiries and real-time updates; and hardware/software updates.
     
    Requests for assistance are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and must be submitted at least 18-24 months prior to the requested implementation date, 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 understand the process, AAMVA will distribute the NMVTIS State Implementation Plan for Jurisdictions document and will host an upcoming webinar.
