CDL Third-Party Testing Anti-Fraud Software aka Commercial Skills Test Information Management System (CSTIMS)

The goal of this project was to develop and deploy software that detects and/or deters fraud by third-party and State commercial driver's license (CDL) skills testers during testing activities. The project was prompted by a May 2002 U.S. Department of Transportation/Inspector General's report regarding CDL fraud and the actions that need to be taken by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The CDL Test and Commercial Driver's Permit (CDP) Standard issued in May 2011 addresses the issues in the report. The Commercial Skills Testing Information Management System (CSTIMS) is the software that was developed by this project, and it can help State DMVs satisfy many of the new requirements in the new standard pertaining to fraud prevention. A final report detailing the project approach and findings is published and available.
