About the research
The Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT’s) Midwest Cross-Jurisdictional Image Verification project was a multi-state (Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, and South Dakota) project employing an interstate image verification program to detect and prevent commercial driver’s license (CDL) fraud.
This report documents the existing resources and workflows of the participating state driver’s license agencies (SDLAs), subsequent project-related efforts and impacts, and the level of cross-jurisdictional fraud uncovered. The project demonstrated that four state driver’s licensing agencies can successfully communicate and exchange data to systematically identify possible CDL fraud involving multiple agencies.
