Biometric Driving Licence Issuing Process for Kentucky

L-1 Identity Solutions : 11 February, 2010  (Application Story)
L-1 Identity Solutions gains contract from Kentucky for secure driving licences including biometric face recognition technology
L-1 Identity Solutions has been awarded a contract by the Commonwealth of Kentucky to provide a secure driving licence solution with facial recognition as part of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's effort to protect the public and prevent fraud. The contract with L-1 includes a base three-year term valued at approximately $11.1 million and three additional two-year extension options that bring the total contract value to approximately $33.7 million.

Kentucky uses an over-the-counter system for issuing secure driving licences that includes fraud prevention processes such as photo first image capture and enrolment. The State also uses facial recognition technology designed, developed and maintained by L-1 to prevent persons from establishing duplicate identities.

Robert LaPenta, Chairman, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions said, "We have worked with the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 2001 and we are honoured to continue partnering with them to make Kentucky driving licences one of the most secure and advanced identity documents in the Nation. The State has a focused vision for the future of its issuing process and our decades of experience, expansive customer base, field tested technology and innovative solutions, makes L-1 uniquely qualified to help the State achieve its goals.'

The contract was awarded to L-1 as the result of a competitive process.
