Wisconsin Joins E-Verify RIDE Program

USCIS announced that Wisconsin has become the latest state to join the Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) Program. RIDE is an E-Verify initiative, in conjunction with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, linking the E-Verify system with participating state driver’s licensing agencies. Beginning Nov. 15, 2015, Wisconsin joins Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska and North Dakota in RIDE.

RIDE allows E-Verify to validate the authenticity of driver’s licenses and state identification cards presented by employees as Form I-9 identity documents. RIDE helps to reduce document fraud and boost the accuracy of employment eligibility verification in E-Verify. For more details, see Driver’s License Verification and the RIDE Wisconsin Fact Sheet.
