Driving licence programmes becoming more secure globally

Datacard Group : 26 August, 2014  (Company News)
Datacard is seeing a growth in demand for its driving licence manufacturing processes as more countries change over to more secure identification methods
Driving licence programmes becoming more secure globally

During one year, more than 40 million driving licences have been issued globally utilizing Datacard government solutions.  And that number is projected to grow as government organizations recognize the benefits of implementing personalization and authentication solutions that help mitigate fraud, protect identities, and demonstrate service improvements to their citizens.

Datacard Group’s driving licence projects span globally over a wide range of delivery models, processes and environments – which enables the company to continuously learn from the large base of projects and offer insights to customers and partners for identifying key considerations and market drivers. In North America alone, 18 million of those driving licences were issued in over 15 states and provinces.

“By making use of our vast experience in all of our projects around the world, as well as listening to the needs of our partners and customers, we continue to bring to market secure, innovative solutions that ease the implementation and operational burden of critical projects and comply with all the changing standards,” said Michael Berman, vice president of government sales for Datacard Group. “Faced with increasing rates of fraud, administrators in many driving licence programmes are now moving to far more secure solutions and technologies already recognized in many other countries around the world.”

Globally, Datacard Group projects that the number of driving licences issued each year will continue to increase as more and more programmes change over to increased security features such as laser engraving.  For example, the whole of the European Union has already taken the action to mandate all driving licences to be laser engraved polycarbonate cards.

“Many states in the USA have also moved to laser technology to virtually eliminate counterfeiting and alteration, including Virginia, New York, Wisconsin and Washington DC,” added Berman. “This is a national security and economic growth issue which has resulted in many countries moving to this more secure ID technology.  We expect that there will be many more driving licence programmes changing over in the coming years.”
