Automate Data Extraction with Driver’s License OCR

Stay at the forefront of document processing by effortlessly integrating our driving license OCR via API or SDK. Discover how Klippa’s OCR software extracts data from drivers licenses in three simple steps. 

Scan with a drivers license scanner SDK or upload images through our OCR API

Use our driver’s license SDK scanner to capture the data or upload the images through our 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 driver’s license OCR API uncropped (with the background there), or cropped (without the background). If you choose to send the document uncropped, the driver’s license OCR API automatically crops the document.

Transform image to TXT with driving license OCR

In the second step, our driver’s 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.

Receive JSON output from the API

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 driver’s license OCR is finished and the driver’s license can be processed in the database of the company.

Can driver’s license OCR process MRZ from driving licenses?

Can Klippa’s OCR extract pictures and signatures from driver’s licenses?

Klippa strives to be the best in everything. Using our driver’s license scanner, we are also able to scan and extract the pictures and signatures from driving licenses, next to all the normal data fields.

Next to normal data extraction of driving license OCR, Klippa offers an API and a drivers license scanner SDK for identity validation. This solution is called Klippa Identity Verification and is used for KYC and remote customer onboarding.

It goes a step further than just the OCR API and actually checks the picture quality, validity of the driving license and numerous other points.

We assist in conducting KYC checks for various sectors such as KYC for banking, gambling, marketplaces, traveling, car rentals, healthcare and more.
