Electronic Verification Of Identification For A Motor Vehicle Rental

Concerning the use of an electronic device to verify the driver's license of a person who rents a motor vehicle.
2019 Regular Session
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

Drivers' licenses - renting or loaning a motor vehicle - use of electronic device for verification of driver's license. Current law prohibits a person from renting a motor vehicle to another person until the prospective lessor of the vehicle has inspected the prospective lessee's driver's license and compared and verified the signature on the license with the prospective lessee's signature in his or her presence. The act removes the requirement that the inspection be performed in the prospective lessee's presence and provides that the inspection may be performed through the use of an electronic device and must verify only that the license is unexpired.

Current law requires a person who rents a motor vehicle to another person to keep a record of the registration number of the motor vehicle, the name and address of the other person, the number of the license of the other person, and the date and place when and where the license was issued. The act removes the requirement that the record include the date that the license was issued and permits the person who rents the motor vehicle to maintain the record in an electronic format.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
