Although a state-issued driver’s license was originally intended only to document a person’s qualification to operate a motor vehicle, it has evolved into the most common identification document used by government and business entities. As a result of the rampant growth of identity theft, use of altered or counterfeit driver’s license has increased as well. To combat this issue, Indiana has enacted stringent requirements regarding the documents that must be presented in order for a credential applicant to prove his/her identity, residency, and lawful presence in the United States. BMV branch associates are trained to recognize counterfeit and/or fraudulent identity documents. Indiana has also enhanced the security features in all state-issued driver’s license and identification cards to deter alteration and counterfeiting. The Indiana Driver’s License and ID Card Security and Authenticity flyer will assist law enforcement and other legal professionals recognize fraudulent Indiana driver’s license and identification cards.
