Insurance Information and Enforcement System (IIES)

The Insurance Information Enforcement System (IIES) is the Department of Motor Vehicles' comprehensive vehicle based system that makes use of an insurance information database to monitor the insurance status of NYS registered vehicles. Vehicle registrants provide DMV with vehicle identification numbers (VINS) during their vehicle registration process and insurance companies use the same names and VINS when reporting any change in a registrants insurance coverage to DMV.

Insured vehicle information is used by DMV and Law Enforcement personnel and is intended to identify, sanction and ultimately remove uninsured vehicles from New York's highways.
