Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) was launched on June 13, 2011 to combat document fraud when determining employees’ eligibility to work in the United States, as more than 80 percent of employees present driver’s licenses to establish their identities when completing the Form I-9. Hence, enabling E-Verify to compare driver’s license data against state records improves E-Verify’s accuracy even while observing safeguards to protect employee’s personal data.
As of July 14, 2013, Idaho is the third state to join the Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) program, the first two being Mississippi and Florida.
RIDE enables E-Verify employers to confirm the validity of both social security card and driver’s license to establish identity and his/her employment authorization.
The new E-Verify RIDE feature builds on existing technology and infrastructure that the Department of Public Safety (MDPS) and other state public safety departments use in conjunction with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.
