May 15, 2013, Billerica, MA: MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading U.S. provider of identity solutions and services, announced a series of contracts for its automated knowledge and skills testing solutions for state motor vehicle agencies. The North Dakota Department of Transportation recently implemented MorphoTrust™ RoadTest and the Georgia Department of Driver Services has awarded a contract for implementation in 2013. In addition, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has expanded its MorphoTrust™ AutoTest solution statewide. Similarly, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles has contracted to implement both AutoTest and RoadTest in 2013. All contracts cover solutions provided by MorphoTrust over the next three to five years.
AutoTest was developed to meet the strict federal requirements for commercial driver license knowledge testing as regulated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration while providing state motor vehicle agencies with the ability to customize and expand testing programs while reducing opportunities for fraud. AutoTest’s highly-secure, browser-based system is used by 18 states and provinces in North America for automation of the driver knowledge testing process. AutoTest delivers millions of exams each year in over 900 testing locations with over 3,000 testing stations.
RoadTest is MorphoTrust’s automated skills testing and tracking solution for use by state motor vehicle agency staff while administering the driver road skills test. Used by eight jurisdictions utilizing over 200 tablets, RoadTest offers state-of-the-art testing on a tablet computer, replacing paper-based processes and automating scoring. RoadTest reduces the time associated with re-keying data in enterprise systems and the costs of physically distributing test copies across an organization. Its advanced handwriting recognition algorithms allow examiners to capture notes and signatures, and yields highly accurate automatic handwriting recognition results. In addition, RoadTest helps eliminate testing fraud with features such as GPS tracking and photo capture.
“MorphoTrust is a trusted partner to state motor vehicle agencies as we continually improve the driver and ID services and convenience provided to the public,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Through solutions like AutoTest and RoadTest we are increasing our ability to support agencies and provide the utmost security throughout all motor vehicle transactions.”

MorphoTrust also provides background vetting and other identification services in all 50 states through 1,200 local service centers and supplies biometric systems for several U.S. federal agencies.
