  • Through AAMVA's Committees and Working Groups, AAMVA works with member jurisdictions to develop Best Practice documents and model legislation. These documents are designed for Chief Driver License Administrators and Law Enforcement personnel and staff.

    A "Best Practices Document" establishes the ideal approach for establishing and maintaining programs. The guidelines provided in this document are recommended and provide a jurisdiction with details on optimal model programs. A "Best Practice" is not mandated nor monitored for compliance.

Every jurisdiction has an ignition interlock law; however, there is no model program or national strategy that addresses every component of an ignition interlock program.

    Through the work of AAMVA's Ignition Interlock Program Best Practices Working Group, this newly-published best practice provides guidance for AAMVA member agencies that are legislatively charged with administering ignition interlock programs and to standardize program administration, terminology, and model enabling legislation.
