MorphoTrust USA Aids Oklahoma to Introduce Driver License and Upgraded Issuance System

MorphoTrust USA, a company offering identity solutions designed to simplify, protect and secure the lives of the American people, has been helping the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety to introduce a newly designed driver’s license and driver’s license issuance system in 41 states and the District of Columbia.

Michael C. Thompson, Commissioner for the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, said the new license meets rigorous security requirements and will not only upgrade their system, but enhance customer service as well.

The new design will come in to force this November and this system will also benefit state’s veterans, as they have the option of including a veteran’s insignia on their card, making it easy to spot Oklahoma drivers who have served their country.

Bob Eckel, MorphoTrust CEO, said the process of upgrading the systems and rolling out the new license design is proceeding as planned.

“We’re pleased to continue our strong partnership with Oklahoma’s Department of Public Safety,” Eckel said. “The changes will help achieve the goal of ‘one person, one identity,’ to address the problem of multiple identity fraud.”

The company also plans to help out the state in its outreach efforts to law enforcement, so that officials will know about the changes to the card’s layout and easily recognize key elements so that they can more easily spot fake IDs.

MorphoTrust USA is a Morpho company and part of the Safran Group, delivering solutions for secure ID issuance, such as U.S. driver licenses and passports, as well as for border management, law enforcement, retail, travel and applicant vetting through the use of document authentication, data verification and biometrics (iris, fingerprints and face).

The firm operate a nationwide network of ID service centers, with over 1,200 locations.
