E-Verify Expands Access to DMV Records

On September 17, 2018, the Department of Homeland Security and United States Citizenship and Immigration Service

announced that E-Verify expanded its access to Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records. Subsequently, if an employee presents a driver’s license or state ID card as a List B document for Form I-9, and if the document is issued by one of the states and territories under E-Verify’s expanded access, E-Verify will prompt the user to enter the document information into E-Verify. E-Verify is using this process to prepare for an expansion of driver’s license and state ID verification capabilities.

Note that states participating in the Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) program will continue to verify the validity of driver’s license and state ID card information.
