EZLynx Driver and Vehicle Lookup is an optional feature that saves time by pulling complete driver and vehicle information using a third-party vendor Lexis Nexis. With the click of a button, driver and vehicle data is pulled from public records based on the applicant’s name and physical address which can assist in obtaining more accurate quotes. It’s recommended to only use this feature when the applicant has been at their current address for at least a year otherwise there might not be information to pull into EZLynx.

How do I get the Lexis Nexis - Driver/Vehicle Lookup?


There are a few things that need to happen to get Lexis Nexis setup for your EZLynx account. Please see the steps down below to help make this as easy as possible for your agency. As Lexis Nexis is a third-party vendor, the setup of your Lexis Nexis account is handled by Lexis Nexis directly. 


1. AGENCY ACTION REQUIRED - Obtain an EZLynx Contract/Package that includes Lexis Nexis. Lexis Nexis is included in Rating Engine Contracts for Retail Agencies, and the following packages: Standard, Advanced, EZValue, EZGrowth, & EZUltra. Please refer to the Docusign Contract to determine which package you might have. If you are unsure what package you have or do not have one of the listed packages, please reach out to salesadmin@appliedsystems.com to start the contract process. 


2. AGENCY ACTION REQUIRED - Once the contract is signed and processed by our Billing Team, you can expect an email from our Onboarding Team with more information on the product. Please respond to this email with either your Node ID (if you are an existing Lexis Nexis customer) or a response that you are not an existing customer with Lexis Nexis. Either way after you respond, our Onboarding Team will send a Lexis Nexis Setup Request on behalf of your agency.


3. AGENCY ACTION REQUIRED - Once Lexis Nexis gets the Account Setup Request for your agency, they will handle the setup of your account on the back-end. Therefore, they will contact you directly to move forward with the implementation process. Normally, this process can take 2-3 weeks, but it can take longer depending on your responsiveness to Lexis Nexis emails, so please be on the lookout for any correspondence you receive from them.


This feature cannot be setup for you in EZLynx until you have completed all of Lexis Nexis' setup requirements.


  • If you have an existing Node ID, this will expedite the process, but you will still need to go through Lexis Nexis' credentialing process which includes obtaining carrier sponsorship. 
  • If you do not have an existing Node ID, Lexis Nexis will be reaching out to you to complete a Lexis Nexis application and will require carrier sponsorship.
    • Please note, EZLynx is unable to answer questions on the application from Lexis Nexis. If you have questions on how to complete the application or carrier sponsorship, please reach out to Lexis Nexis Support at 1-800-456-6432 & select Option 1 then Option 2 to speak to a customer representative.


4. Once Lexis Nexis completes the implementation process, they will provide the EZLynx Onboarding Rep. with the information needed to enable the product for your agency.


5. The EZLynx Onboarding Rep. enables the product for your agency and will send you an email confirming the product has been setup. 


What if Lexis Nexis has different Agency Information?


The information Lexis Nexis has on file MUST match what EZLynx has on file. If Lexis Nexis has a different agency name or agency address on file than what EZLynx has, then they will reach out to you directly to confirm the discrepancy in information and include the EZLynx Onboarding Team on copy.


If you receive an email stating that the information provided does not match the information Lexis Nexis has on file, Lexis Nexis will provide you both sets of information to choose from. 

  • Authorization Information means the information EZLynx submitted in the initial request. 
  • Lexis Nexis System Information means the information Lexis Nexis has on file. 


To move the process along, please respond to the Lexis Nexis email with the EZLynx Onboarding Team on copy with the correct agency information so everyone is on the same page. By providing the correct agency information with both Lexis Nexis and EZLynx Onboarding Team on the email, they can assist in next steps to continue the process.


Attention! - The setup process can take several weeks depending on your responsiveness to Lexis Nexis. It is your responsibility as the agent to respond back to Lexis Nexis if they require clarification on your agency address or agency name to proceed in the implementation process. Lexis Nexis can reject your application for service if you do not meet their setup requirements.
