American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators’ Fraud Detection Training Modules

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) would like to introduce a new eLearning training series created by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) on fraud detection.

AAMVA’s Fraud Detection & Remediation (FDR) program is the industry’s premier fraud training used by DMV’s, law enforcement, federal agencies, and corporations worldwide. AAMVA’s training modules and supplements develop skills in the authentication of documents in more than 12 categories, including:
 •   Birth Certificates
 •   Social Security Cards
 •   Military IDs and more

FDR is the most comprehensive anti-fraud toolbox available. The modularized eLearning suite provides invaluable training to anyone handling secure documents or sensitive transactions. Although this training is not mandatory, the TxDMV recognizes the importance of making this training available. Today’s technology-rich environment opens the door for fraudsters to expand their sphere of influence and corrupt the seemingly incorruptible. By arming your staff with knowledge to combat the ever-changing methods of corruption, your county will be playing a vital role in the reduction of fraud and the protection of our citizens.

This training will be available on August 29 on the TxDMV training portal located at The training is modularized, and with the aid of the AAMVA Fraud Detection and Remediation training implementation plan, your county will be well on its way to protecting itself and from fraud.
