WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following was released today by American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators on the Real ID Act:

"The successful implementation of the driver's license and ID card provisions in the Real ID Act is a major priority issue for the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and state Motor Vehicle Agencies (DMVs) across the U.S.," said Linda Lewis-Pickett, president and CEO, AAMVA, while presiding today over the association's Board meeting in Los Angeles, Calif.

Given AAMVA's longstanding commitment to this task, Lewis- Pickett offered clarification to the Associated Press' Brian Bergstein's recent depiction of a Real ID impact analysis to the states.

"First, AAMVA did not conduct an August 2005 survey of its members. The non-published draft survey Bergstein referenced in his January 12, 2006, article was conducted nearly a year ago and merely captured the initial state reactions prior to the law's formal enactment. But most importantly, by matter of policy and practice, AAMVA does not publicly release its members' comments while a 'draft' is in progress," said Lewis-Pickett.

Lewis-Pickett said the issues raised in the article are none- the-less relevant and are being responsibly addressed by DMV administrators and law enforcement officials and reflected in the Real ID Task Force credo: http://www.aamva.org/Documents/idsRealIDTaskForceCREDO.pdf

For the last several months, AAMVA's Real ID Task Force has been working with the Department of Homeland Security and state groups, like the National Governors Association and the National Conference of State Legislatures to prepare formal input regarding the issues, impacts and recommendations to ensure the Real ID Act is implemented in a practical and successful manner. The AAMVA task force plans to issue its recommendations in late February, 2006.

Founded in 1933, AAMVA actively promotes traffic safety and uniformity among North American jurisdictions. Representing chief motor vehicle administrators and law enforcement officials, the association develops uniform programs in driver licensing, vehicle titling/registration and motor carrier services, among others.
