I need to read the back of driver's licenses

I have a store and would like to read the barcode information located on the driver's license and save it into our database. What do I need?

Different states have different methods of encoding data on the driver's license, some have the data located in a magnetic stripe and some have the data encoded in a PDF417 barcode. If you visit http://www.aamva.org/ID-Security-Technologies/ and click on the “US License Technology” tab, you will see what states use what type of technology.

To read the magnetic stripe data, we would suggest the https://www.idautomation.com/barcode-scanners/msr-check-readers/omni-slot-magstripe.html specifically the IDTech USB Magnetic Stripe Reader (WCR3237-533U). To contact IDTech for additional information, Customer Service: 800-984-1010 or Tech Support: 714-761-6368

To read the PDF417 2D Barcode data, we would suggest the Motorola DS4800 2D Barcode Imager (DS4801-DL4U0000SGW) or the Motorola DS6878-DL Driver's License Cordless 2D Imager (DS6878-DL20007W). To contact Motorola for additional information, Customer Service & Tech Support: 800-653-5350
