California DMV Enrolls in Motor Carrier Insurance Database

The California Department of Motor Vehicles recently enrolled with the National Online Registries to electronically receive insurance information for trucking companies that use subscribing insurance companies.

NOR, which contains motor carrier insurance certificate information submitted from insurance companies, is now currently operating in 19 other states. It allows the industry to electronically submit mandatory insurance verification information to the database instead of by mail. DMV officials say that access to the database will reduce the Motor Carrier Division's insurance certificate-related paperwork load each year by half, from some 160,000 documents to fewer than 80,000.

In addition to eliminating a large number of paper documents, duplicate documents DMV must generate for operators/carriers will be more accurate. If MCD rejects an insurance certificate for some reason, the information will be almost immediately noted in the NOR database for the 259 participating insurance carriers within 24 to 48 hours.

Since NOR is web-based, the training process is simple and requires no additional DMV employees. Because of the paperwork and reduction in documents, NOR should save MCD and the department money almost immediately.
