LIGHTSTONE Auto, a South African company which last year developed a smartphone app that scans a vehicle's licence disc, has added a new function that scans a driver's licence card to return information about the cardholder.
Existing functionality provided information on a vehicle's VIN number, registration number, make, model and licence details.
It could also establish if a vehicle is stolen, or if there is a discrepancy between the VIN number and make and model, as well as all all-important vehicle accident history information.
But now new features allow users to also easily and accurately scan and decrypt the barcode on a driver's licence card to automatically return information on the cardholder, including a verified photograph of the driver. The functionality enables people involved in vehicle sales, financing and insurance specific information about a vehicle and its driver or owner.
"It is extremely difficult for someone to tamper with the encrypted barcode contained on a driver's licence card," says
In addition to the driver's licence and licence disc scans, the app provides comprehensive data on vehicle pricing values such as retail value, trade value, residual value and sales performance metrics.
The app is available for download on Android and Apple devices and is free to download but users will pay a per transaction fee. For more information visit: www.lightstone.co.za
