The Benefits of Drivers License Verification


In September 2013, New York implemented a new format of drivers licenses in an effort to make them more secure. This was done in hopes to start preventing underage drinking and reducing identity fraud. Although New York is making an effort to secure identities, others arent. Businesses need to be able to verify a customers age by their drivers license, both for off-line and online activities.
