B10.8 - Drivers License/ID Cards

  Group Description  
The INCITS/B10 Project for US Drivers License Standard has been canceled, but work continues on the International Drivers License standard. B10.8 serves as the US Tag to the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC17 WG10 efforts on International Standardization of Driver License documents.

The international standard establishes guidelines in the format and content of motor vehicle driver licenses (DLs) to support the requirements of national or regional motor vehicle authorities and international conventions. It creates a common basis for international use and recognition of DLs without impeding individual national and regional authorities in taking care of their specific needs.

DLs and related documents are defined within the standard, in a broad framework of categories as documents for separate uses or function including passenger vehicles, commercial transport vehicles, other related traffic safety applications (e.g. transport driver recorder card) and other card functions at the discretion of individual national/regional motor vehicle authorities. They can be enhanced by the adoption of machine-readable technologies.
