Frequently Asked Questions

What does extraction of driver’s license data cost?
The pricing structure for driving license recognition depends on the situation. Both pay per use and monthly licenses are available. Get in contact with our solution architects to get an exact quote.
Can Klippa process the MRZ from driving licenses?
Most driving licenses do not contain a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ). Therefore MRZ parsing is not common. If a driving license does contain an MRZ, Klippa will be able to recognize it. Klippa supports all three types of MRZ. 
Can Klippa extract pictures from driver’s licenses?
Both the pictures and signatures can automatically be recognized and extracted by Klippa. This is an optional feature that is used depending on the use case.
What driving licenses are supported?
We are on our way to support all driver’s licenses, worldwide. Currently we support European and American licenses. If you have a specific type that you want to process, just reach out to us. Our machine learning models are very flexible and can easily adapt to new information.
How does Klippa check authenticity?
On top of traditional data extraction, Klippa offers an API and SDK for identity validation. This solution is called Klippa Identity Validation and is used for KYC and remote customer onboarding. It is more advanced than the OCR API and actually checks the quality of photos, validity of passports and numerous other issues. It also compares two independent selfies with the picture on the passport, returning a matching score to validate if they are the same person.
Is Klippa’s driver’s license processing GDPR compliant?
All the services that Klippa offers are fully GDPR compliant. We only use ISO-certified servers within the European Union for processing and a data processor agreement is in place. We do not store any of your or your customers’ data.
Is there documentation for the driving license OCR API?
Klippa was founded by developers. Therefore we understand the value of a well documented API. Our documentation is created using SWAGGER and can be found via this link.
