Driver’s License Verification

Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE)

Driver’s licenses and ID cards account for nearly 80 percent of the documents used as proof of identity by employees for E-Verify. The Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) initiative is an enhancement to the E-Verify program that verifies the validity of driver’s license and ID card information by matching the data entered by employers against participating state motor vehicle department records. RIDE enables two-part verification by validating the information on select identity documents in addition to the existing employment authorization check.
