Driving license OCR
Increase the organization’s effectiveness with driving license OCR. Process driver’s licenses securely and safely with Klippa’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) solution. Powered by machine learning.
Automatic data extraction with Klippa driving license OCR
Extract information from driver’s licenses within a matter of seconds. Below you will find an example of how our driving license OCR API solution gathers all essential details in a couple of seconds. Therefore, our OCR API can provide you with instant scan results.
Step 1: uploading the driving license to the OCR API
In the first step, a picture or a PDF file of the driver’s license will be provided to the driver’s license OCR API. This document can either be sent from the mobile application, or the web app.
You can choose to send the document to the driving license OCR API uncropped (with the background there), or cropped (without the background). If you choose to send the document uncropped, the API automatically crops the document. The driver’s license scanner SDK can be used to optimize the quality of the image.
Step 2: converting the image to a TXT file
In the second step, our driving license OCR solution converts the image or PDF into a TXT file. The data is then extracted from the image of the driver’s license, but not yet structured.
Step 3: parsing the TXT file into JSON
As for the final step, the Klippa parser takes the TXT file from the previous step and converts this into a JSON file. The JSON file is then returned to the API as output. After these steps the process of the driving license OCR is finished and the driver’s license can easily be processed in the database of the company.

Most driving licenses do not contain a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ). Therefore, MRZ parsing is not common. If a driving license does contain a MRZ, the Klippa driving license OCR solution will be able to recognize it. Klippa supports all types of MRZ.
Pictures and signatures can both be automatically recognized and extracted by Klippa. This feature is optional and is used depending on the case.
Any situation that requires the processing of large numbers of driving licenses, is relevant for our software. Common sectors for driving license OCR are insurance, accounting, aviation, travel, hotels, onboarding, banking, loyalty and more.
We are on our way to support all driver’s licenses, worldwide. At the moment, we support American and European driving licenses. If there’s a specific type of license you would like to process, please reach out to us! Our machine learning models are very flexible and can easily adapt to new information.
Did you know that apart from driving licenses, Klippa OCR can scan other types of identity documents, such as student ID cards, MRZ codes, and more? Contact us for more information.
Besides the driving license OCR API, Klippa offers an API and SDK for identity validation. This solution is called “Klippa Identity Validation” and can be used for both KYC and remote customer onboarding. This is more advanced than our regular drivers license OCR API, since it checks the quality of the pictures, validity of the driver’s license and numerous more issues.
All services we offer are fully GDPR compliant. We only use ISO-certified servers within the EU for processing. Besides that, a data processor agreement is in place. We do not store any of your (customers’) data.
Additionally, Klippa provides an option to mask sensitive data. You can read more about that on our data masking blog.
At Klippa, we understand the value of well documented APIs. Our documentation about the driving license OCR API is created while using SWAGGER and it can be found via this link.
