DL-CARDS - Drivers License

About This Committee

The INCITS/Drivers License works on the international Drivers License standard.

The international standard establishes guidelines in the format and content of motor vehicle driver licenses (DLs) to support the requirements of national or regional motor vehicle authorities and international conventions. It creates a common basis for international use and recognition of DLs without impeding individual national and regional authorities in taking care of their specific needs.

DLs and related documents are defined within the standard, in a broad framework of categories as documents for separate uses or function including passenger vehicles, commercial transport vehicles, other related traffic safety applications (e.g. transport driver recorder card) and other card functions at the discretion of individual national/regional motor vehicle authorities. They can be enhanced by the adoption of machine-readable technologies.

This Task Group serves as the US TAG to the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC 17/WG10.

Note: This technical committee was formerly known as INCITS/DL-Cards - Drivers License until January 2022.
