  • AAMVA Awards Program



  • AAMVA’s awards program fosters a tradition of excellence in the motor vehicle and law enforcement community by honoring individuals, teams, and organizations who have committed their time and resources to safety and security initiatives, outstanding customer service, and public affairs and consumer educational programs throughout North America. Each year, AAMVA receives numerous outstanding submissions in each category and through a rigorous judging process selects those that are exemplary. Awards are presented at our Regional Conferences and at our Annual International Conference.  

    We presented our 2021 International Awards at the Virtual AIC. We hope to meet in person in November for our Region 3 Conference and present those regional winners there. All awards will be mailed to recipients (except for those for the Region 3 Conference). You can expect to receive them by the end of September.   

      Eligibility for AAMVA Awards Program

      • AAMVA’s Awards Program is open to all AAMVA jurisdiction members in good standing. 
      • With the exception of the Lifetime Achievement in Highway Safety awards, the content of the submissions must have been completed during AAMVA’s previous full fiscal year. For example, entries submitted for the 2021 Awards must have been conducted, produced, implemented, and/or developed in FY2020 (between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020). 
      • If an entry won an award in a previous year, it cannot be resubmitted unless it has substantive upgrades or developments from the original submission.

      IDEC Examiner of the Year Award

      Annually, the International Driver Examiner Certification (IDEC) Board and AAMVA recognizes outstanding examiners through the IDEC Examiner of the Year award. Each member jurisdiction nominates one examiner for outstanding performance as a driver's license examiner. Examiners are selected for their excellence in adhering to the principles and recommended practices of driver examining (the Examiner's Code of Ethics) and for their high level of conduct in their profession. Each jurisdiction's "Examiner of the Year" receives a certificate and a congratulatory letter from the IDEC Executive Board. Visit the IDEC Examiner of the Year page for more information, including a list award recipients for the current year and for prior years.
