Always Start With the Back

  • The backside will often have indicators that will immediately reveal it as a fake. Look for:
  • Blurred imagery on barcode, seals or print
  • Disclaimers, " non government document" or " non transferable document"

Then check the front for:

  • Issuing agency - all legitimate documents will have one
  • Physical description (height, weight, hair, eyes and DOB)
  • Picture (pay special attention to facial features)
  • Grainy photos, UV print & document in general
  • Expiration or duplicate document
  • Check the typeset. Color and consistency of numbers of the date of birth should match the rest of the ID
  • Check state seals, images or signatures that are superimposed over the picture and
    informational sections of the license or ID. If they are missing, “split” or appear to have been tampered with, it is likely the picture has been replaced.
  • Look for holograms or print using the following language or symbols which may indicate possible forgery:
  • "Seal of Authenticity"
  • "Genuine"
  • "Authentic"
  • "Secure" or "Valid"
  • Keys, eagles, locks, non-governmental seals or globes
