Dont Rely on Scanning for Fake IDs Verify from the DMV

  • Identity Verification

In an effort to make drivers licenses more secure, New York has officially started to implement a new format with black and white laser engraved images of residents (rather than your standard color photo) and several other security features. This is being done in hopes of preventing underage drinking and reducing identity fraud. The problem is, these changes are only being implemented in one state. So while the number of fake IDs may decrease in New York, they will likely continue to rise in other states.

Businesses need to be able to verify a customers age by their drivers license, both for off-line and online activities. Drivers license verification comes into play in many circumstances, such as online gaming with age restrictions, gambling or alcohol related services, and can be extremely helpful in preventing fraud. Any service with age restrictions or risky transaction activity could greatly benefit from drivers license verification.
