Information technology -- Personal identification -- ISO-compliant driving licence -- Part 2: Machine-readable technologies

ISO/IEC 18013-2:2008 establishes guidelines for the content and formatting of data stored on an ISO compliant driving licence (IDL) using machine-readable technologies. It creates a common basis for the international use of IDL data without restricting individual domestic or regional driver licensing authorities from applying their specific data policies.

ISO/IEC 18013-2:2008 specifies the following items.

  • Mandatory and optional machine-readable data. Machine-readable IDL data support the following functions (subject in some cases to the inclusion of appropriate optional data elements):
    • confirming the driving privileges of a driver;
    • enabling a link to be established to a driving privilege database;
    • age verification;
    • identity verification;
    • biographical data verification;
    • evidence of residence;
    • biometric authentication;
    • document authentication and validation.
  • The logical data structure.
  • Encoding methods for the following:
    • cases where the memory capacity available to the IDL application does not exceed 5 kB, typically applicable to 2D barcode symbologies, high-coercivity high-density magnetic stripe and limited memory capacity integrated circuits (contactless and those with contacts);
    • integrated circuits (contactless and those with contacts) where the memory capacity available to the IDL application exceeds 5 kB;
    • optical memory.
