The States of Arizona, Maryland and Wyoming joined the Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) program. RIDE links E-Verify with state motor vehicle department databases, and allows it to verify the validity of driver's license and ID card information. Since almost 80 percent of employees use such documents as proof of identity, RIDE enhances E-Verify's employment authorization check.
Now, if an employee presents a driver's license or state ID card for I-9 form purposes, and the document is issued by a RIDE state, E-Verify will prompt the employer 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.
RIDE provides employers with even greater confidence in the responses from E-Verify and helps to identity ID-based employment fraud as well as the fraudulent use of driver licenses and ID cards.
Arizona, Maryland, and Wyoming join the States of Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin in the RIDE program.
