The Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) is a database administered by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). A federal mandate requires all states to store information in CDLIS about the commercial driver’s licenses they have administered.
HireRight’s CDLIS+ searches not only the AAMVA database but also our proprietary Multiple License Pointer File (MLPF) which contains information from previous HireRight MVR searches. This value-added service reports any additional licenses found that did not show up in the AAMVA search.
The CDLIS+ report verifies the current state and license number of a driver as well as up to three prior CDLs the driver may have held. It can quickly eliminate an applicant who does not hold a commercial driver’s license or identify issues that may need to be addressed at the state.
