Am I able to see additional information regarding the driver's license?

No. This tool provides a "Match" or "No Match" response. Getting a "No Match" means that LicenseMatch has found an inconsistency between the data entered and the state's records. Georgia privacy laws prohibit additional information to be provided.

How current is the information in the state database? Can I be confident that I will get a correct match result?

Results from LicenseMatch are reliable, since the information in the state database is usually updated every 24 hours. However, LicenseMatch queries the state database based on your input. So it's important to enter the search criteria exactly as it appears on the license.

What is LicenseMatch? How does it work?

LicenseMatch is a online tool that requires no special hardware - just an Internet connection. You simply enter data from the driver's license or ID presented to get an immediate verification against information in the state’s database. A false identity can be revealed if the data on the license or ID and the state’s records don’t match.
