Data Vendor Selected for Texas Auto Insurance Verification Program

November 9, 2006

The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), serving as lead agency in a joint project with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), reported that HDI Solutions Inc. has signed a contract to implement a motor vehicle financial responsibility verification program.

The verification program, which will enable law enforcement officers to quickly and accurately verify a driver’s required auto insurance coverage, was mandated by Senate Bill 1670 in the 79th Texas Legislature (2005).

This is the beginning of an ongoing process where the ultimate goal is to reduce the number of uninsured drivers. Under the contract, the system will undergo testing before being fully implemented.

HDI Solutions and its partners TransCore L.P., Insure-Rite Inc., and Verification Solutions have developed similar database programs in other parts of the country. The initial term of the contract is two years for a total amount of approximately $6 million.
