USCIS announced that North Dakota is the latest state to join the Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) Program, beginning June 15, 2015. RIDE is an ongoing E-Verify initiative that links E-Verify with participating state driver licensing agencies in conjunction with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.
RIDE allows E-Verify to validate the authenticity of driver’s licenses and state identification cards presented by employees as Form I-9 identity documents. RIDE helps to reduce document fraud and boosts the accuracy of E-Verify employment eligibility verification.
North Dakota joins Mississippi, Florida, Idaho, Iowa and Nebraska in this initiative.
