New Third-Party Check Compares Data on ID to IDs issued by States’ DMVs
Read Time: 3 Min
IDScan.net recently announced the launch of a new identity verification service, DMV Data Verification, which is now available through our integration services. The new service is the latest in the third-party checks IDScan.net offers that help verify an individual’s identity. DMV Data Verification allows IDScan.net clients to confirm in real time that the ID they are scanning matches an ID issued by the jurisdiction.
How it Works
DMV Data Verification allows IDScan.net clients to verify a particular ID matches a driver’s license or other ID issued by that state’s issuing body, typically the DMV. Currently, 32 states—representing 58.5% of the country’s population—have made their data available, and more states are planning to participate.
If the license comes from a participating state, DMV Data Verification compares the information on the ID to that state’s database. It first looks for a matching ID number. If an ID with that document number was not issued, then the ID is fake. It also confirms the name of the individual to whom the ID was issued, as well as the address, gender, and date of birth. If the information on the ID does not match the state’s records, then the ID is fake.
DMV Data Verification can confirm IDs from the following states:
|1. Texas||12. Arizona||23. Idaho|
|2. Florida||13. Missouri||24. Maine|
|3. Illinois||14. Maryland||25. Rhode Island|
|4. Georgia||15. Wisconson||26. Montana|
|5. Pennsylvania||16. Colorado||27. Delaware|
|6. Michigan||17. Kentucky||28. South Dakota|
|7. New Jersey||18. Iowa||29. North Dakota|
|8. Virginia||19. Mississippi||30. Vermont|
|9. Washington||20. Arkansas||31. Washington, D.C.|
|10. Massachusetts||21. New Mexico||32. Wyoming|
|11. Indiana||22. Nebraska|
While it is ideal that all 50 states will ultimately participate in DMV Data Verification, IDScan.net will announce when new states participate in this program.
Integrating DMV Data Verification
Currently, DMV Data Verification is offered as an API, which means that it can be easily integrated into programs that utilize IDScan.net’s ID scanning integrations. In the future, DMV Data Verification will also be available as an optional feature in IDScan.net’s visitor management platform, VeriScan Online.
