We have upgraded our US Driver's License Verifications with a new end point. More information can be found here.

For some use cases, only the data of a provided driver's license or identification card needs to be verified. This differs from a general Identity Verification (IDV) job, which compares a selfies to a photo of an ID document. For a data-only check, use a Driver License Verification (DLV) job.

The DLV endpoint accepts data on a user's identification card and validates that information against the database of the ID's state's Department of Motor Vehicles/Secretary of State. This check enables you to verify that the data on the card (drivers-license or identification-card) matches the data held by the jurisdiction that issued the document.

The DLV process consists of two steps:

  1. Submit DLV Job request with the user info. Include a Webhook ('callbackURL') in the request to receive the DLV response post completion.
  2. The results of the DLV process will be posted to the defined webhook.

The DLV service integrates with AAMVA.


AAMVA stands for the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.

AAMVA is supported for most states but there are a few notable exceptions. The states that are not supported by AAMVA are:

  • Alaska
  • California
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • Nevada
  • New York
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Carolina
  • Utah

AAMVA checks are restricted to US based drivers-license and identification-card. If your state is not supported by AAMVA, you will not be able to complete a DLV job.
