Selective Service Registration (SSR)

The Selective Service Registration (SSR) application provides an automated means for motor vehicle agencies (MVA) to transmit Selective Service System (SSS) registration information on qualifying males who apply for or renew a driver's license, driver's permit, or identification card. The application consists of one transaction from a jurisdiction’s MVA to the U.S. Selective Service System. After the SSS receives the data, it returns a confirmation message (if all data is correct) or an error message (if data is missing or incorrectly formatted).

AAMVA created SSR to facilitate the implementation of state laws that link obtaining or renewing a driver’s license or identification card to Selective Service (i.e., “draft”) registration. Such laws exist because many individuals who are required to register with the Selective Service are unaware of the registration requirement. It is often only after the individual passes the mandatory age requirement and attempts to collect certain benefits or seeks employment from the federal government, that they are turned down for failure to register. Furthermore, over half of the jurisdictions have passed legislation requiring registration with the Selective Service System before individuals may collect benefits and qualify for employment at the state government level as well.
