Commercial Driver’s License Information System Plus (CDLIS+)

Identifies States Where Drivers Hold or Have Held Commercial Drivers' Licenses

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.

Key Benefits
  • Verifies a driver's current license
  • Identifies additional licenses previously held
  • Immediate turnaround to facilitate quick hiring decisions
