This part of ISO/IEC 18013 establishes guidelines for the design format and data content of an ISO compliant driving licence (IDL) in regard to both visual human-readable features and ISO machine-readable technologies. It creates a common basis for international use and mutual recognition of the IDL without impeding individual national/community/r
The design approach of the IDL ISO ID-1 size card and accompanying booklet with sleeve insert pocket is intended to replace the international driving permit (IDP) paper document (see annex G).
The basis of document design premises includes
• a minimum common mandatory data element set;
• a common layout for ease of recognition;
• minimum security requirements.
At the discretion of national/community/r
• allows for inclusion of supplementary optional data elements to meet the needs of specific national/community/r
• allows for the incorporation of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC17 machine-readable technologies including magnetic stripe, integrated circuit with contacts, contactless integrated circuit and optical memory technology, and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC31 1-dimensional / 2-dimensional bar codes, at the option of national/community/r
• allows for the incorporation of current and future technologies (including biometrics, cryptography, data compression) at the option of national/community/r
• allows for additional document physical security elements at the option of national/community/r
A major benefit of these design premises is that a single card may serve a dual purpose of both a national/community/r
This new IDL design yields a document that
• is more secure from counterfeiting and alteration than the previous IDP document;
• allows authorities to verify the authenticity of the document;
• integrates the personal data into a secure ID-1 size medium;
• allows a more reliable identification of the licence holder;
• allows for machine-readable technologies;
• facilitates information exchange and mutual recognition among motor vehicle authorities;
• allows the domestic driving licence (DDL) that meets this Standard to serve simultaneously as an ISO compliant driving licence (IDL).
