The State-to-State (S2S) Verification Service is a means for states to electronically check with all other participating states to determine if the applicant currently holds a driver license or identification card in another state.
The key business requirements satisfied by S2S include: Limit a person to one Driver’s License (DL); Enable a State to determine if a person holds a DL or identification card in another State; Enable a State to send a request to another State to terminate a DL/ID; Provide information on all state issued DL/ID’s nationwide; Enable States to verify DL/ID cards presented as a form of identification; Limit a person to one REAL ID card (whether DL or ID); Enable a State to determine if a person holds a REAL DL or REAL Identification Card in another State. Participation in S2S does not commit a State to be in compliance with the federal REAL ID Act. However, if a State chooses to be REAL ID compliant, S2S is a requirement that will be part of their compliance plan.
The National Highway Transportation & Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have annual grant programs that are available for states that wish to offset costs associated with the implementation and operation of the S2S service. Both NHTSA and DHS have acknowledged that S2S is an eligible use of these grant monies, which are available annually to all states. States are also exploring the use of grants from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to support the level of effort required for states to resolve the large number of potential duplicates, especially those involving a CDLIS pointer and a Non-CDLIS pointer.
