Law enforcement agencies, government agencies, and private industry need to be aware that DMV will begin issuing Oregon Driver Licenses and Identification Cards with an alphanumeric number. This knowledge will ensure that Oregon residents will not be turned away or refused services because an alphanumeric customer number is displayed on their Oregon Driver License or Identification Card.
Some technology systems might need modification in order to use, transfer, or read alphanumeric customer numbers. This includes any data solutions that use, store, or reference the DMV customer number that displays on the front of Oregon Driver Licenses and Identification Cards. Some data solutions also include barcode readers that use the 1-D and 2-D barcodes located on the back of Oregon Driver Licenses and Identification Cards.
