    Technology standards support and optimize the exchange of data between organizations. Standards include data element standards, message exchange protocols, and others that can be used in private and public environments. For example, standards can be used over virtual private networks (VPNs), the Internet, and batch exchange environments.

    AAMVA uses and develops many standards for exchanging motor vehicle and driver information, grouped into the following categories.

    These types of standards...
    And include...
    Data Standards Data element definitions and coding instructions to promote uniformity of data elements communicated between organizations. This allows you to identify and exchange data between you and your partners and jurisdictions to assure the issuance of accurate licenses, registrations, and title.
    Message Protocols Encoding of data so that it can be transferred between organizations that use any platform, with any application. AAMVA uses and provides protocols that can be used in any exchange environment, including the Internet, AAMVAnet, GXS Information Exchange, and batch file transfer.
