Do you know what shocks most liquor licensees? It is the fact that over 65 % of the tickets issued because one has served liquor to a minor is due to plain mathematical errors, mental shortcuts, or they just rushed things - the whole chekout process. To know if the person holding the ID is below required age or if the ID showed is already expired, ID Checkers are made; by design, they can read the age and expiration date showed in the driver's license card. Documentation of the age identification process is needed to prove diligence if declaring positive defense; this is the second reason why ID Checker is made. Even if the ID Checker can also know if an ID presented is real or net (it can tell if the barcode information and the information in the front of license do not match with each other), it doesn't mean that it also functions as a fake ID catcher. It will be idealistic for a company to think that they have "stopped' fake IDs, because these IDs are like fake dollar bills, they both have the same quality.

Someone reading this article might already have found a good ID Checker. If you have found nothing yet, just carry on as this article will give you ideas on what sites will be useful. To be successful in checking IDs, you will need a mix of high technology (ID Checkers), low-tech gadgets (Magnifiers and UV light) plus detective work.

To be able to check IDs, you must first ensure that the date and time given are right. An incorrect input of the time in clocks of ID Checkers may result to wrong calculation of expiration dates and age. Because of this, you should check if the clock is entered properly.

Giving you the ID is better than just showing it. Wherever the ID is, may it be inside the wallet or in a protector, you should tell the person to take it out.

Scanning the ID with the use of an ID Checker should be your first step. An alarm or a visual warning is the way of a good ID Checker to inform you if the person is under age or the given ID is already expired. Within one to two seconds, a good ID Checker can already scan give you results.

When you're done scanning, you should check and compare if the information displayed in the ID Checker is the same with the information given in the back of the ID. When you use a first-class ID Checker, you can see information like: the person's name, ID number, date of birth, expiration date, gender, etc. Do they show the same name? Does the information give out the right gender? When you put a different barcode on the back, just like in some fake IDs, the age that will appear is correct but the name is not.

Take note of the person who presented the ID while you are clutching the ID. Is he or she the same person in the picture? Information, like height, hair and eye color, is shown in the ID may be useful in knowing if the one standing in front of you matches the one in the picture. Do the descriptions match?

When you are comparing information printed in front of the ID, doing the following can be helpful: , feel the surface of the ID, run the ID between your fingers, look for uneven areas, cuts in the surface, lifted lamination, or how the ID flexes. In New York, they try to test by folding the driver's license. Once you unfold the ID, a true one will not have any cracks or creases while the fake ones can even actually crack. You can also check out the quality of the printed information in the front of the license. Try checking for printed words on the ID card that is not straight as this can indicate if the license is valid.

When you are using ID Checker to check driver's license, a good flashlight can be of use. By holding the license in the light, you will be able to see if there any cuts or pinholes or darker and lighter parts of the card that is present. If a card is tampered, you can see these things.

If you happen to have a UV light source, place the card under it. You can only detect if there is a invisible ink in a driver's license once you put them below a UV light. If ever you have encountered many out-of-state license, it is recommended that you should exert an effort in learning how to recognize different UV light patterns. Think about buying an ID checking guidebook.

If there an extra tie, allot it in looking the scanned ID under a 10x or 20x magnifying glass. Micro printing can usually be found in many IDs. When you look at this print, it might seem like a straight line however, when you make us of magnifying glasses or microscope, it is a set of characters. Micro-printing varies in different states; you should know how to discern them. If you don't know anything about it, try consulting the ID checking guidebook that covers micro-printing in all states.

If you are still not sure, you can ask questions regarding the license to the person who's showing it. Below are questions that you can ask them:

• Do you know what is the address and postal code written in the license?

• What is your age? (this is because some minors don't know what is written on the ID) •Kindly tell me what is your Zodiac sign.

Verify the signature on the ID by asking them to sign on piece of paper. Asking people to present other IDs, containing their name, is also helpful. Borrowing driver's license is possible; I don't think it's the same with credit cards.

In conclusion, don't ever let people purchase liquor or cigarettes, especially if you are having doubts regarding their IDs.
