Commercial Driver License Information System

The CDLIS database is monitored and updated by American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). CDLIS consists of a Central Site and nodes at the Motor Vehicle Agencies (MVAs) of the 51 jurisdictions. As of February 25 2013, CDLIS had 14.6 million records, growing at an average rate of nearly 40,000 new records per month. The Central Site houses identification data about each commercial driver registered in the jurisdictions, such as:

• Name
• Date of Birth
• Social Security Number
• State Driver License Number
• AKA Information
• Current “State of Record” (SOR)

This information constitutes a driver’s unique CDLIS Master Pointer Record (MPR). Each MVA houses detailed information about each driver for which it is the SOR. This detailed information, called the driver history, includes identification information, license information, and a history of convictions and withdrawals. When a jurisdiction MVA queries CDLIS to obtain information about an applicant prior to issuing a CDL, the CDLIS Central Site compares data provided by the State Of Inquiry (SOI) against all MPRs in CDLIS. If one or more matches are returned, then the CDLIS Central Site “points” the SOI to the SOR (State of Record). The SOR can then provide the detailed information about the driver’s commercial driving history.

Motor Vehicle Record (MVR)

A motor vehicle record, or MVR, is a report which may include driver’s license information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on an individual’s driving record.

Driver iQ currently offers MVR reports in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and Canada.*

Manual Employment Verifications

Carriers spend a lot of money, and hire a lot of people, to confirm past employment for their entry-level drivers who are not in any database.

Driver iQ can do manual verifications through our Employment Verification Process. We have a 95% close rate on our verifications because our Verification Specialists get paid for completions, not attempts. Driver iQ assumes the veracity of the data we supply to carriers. We document and provide DOT-compliant records of attempts, company, and other information received for your driver files.


A. Your state requires an auto photo inspection for the protection of you and of your insurance company. The inspection is designed to document the existence of the vehicle, its physical condition and existing options and accessories. The ultimate goal of vehicle pre-insurance inspection is to help reduce the cost of automobile physical damage insurance coverage (collision and comprehensive) by accurately documenting your vehicle, and greatly reducing the possibility of fraudulent claims.
