The driver can install the Driver App via the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The fleet manager enables the driver in the LapID customer system to use this control method. The driver is now requested to have his driving license checked every six months.
After the driver has been asked to check his driver's license, the driver starts the driver app and transmits a picture of his driver's license to the LapID system via the smartphone's camera. After completion of the test, all driving license recordings are deleted in accordance with data protection and the successful control is documented in the LapID system. At the same time, the driver receives information about the result of the driver's license check.
Protection against manipulation is an important factor when carrying out a legally secure driver's license check via app. To ensure this, LapID uses a multi-stage verification process that checks the driver's license for authenticity. Due to its complexity, this procedure is currently only available for the German and Austrian EU driving license card.
