Dont Rely on Scanning for Fake IDs Verify from the DMV

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


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
