Driver's License Identity Theft
Driver’s license identity theft occurs when a criminal gets ahold of your driver’s license and alters the photo or information to use or sell it to another as a fake identification. As a result, the fraudulent individual can obtain a driving violation and the charge will appear on your record.
To prevent from being a victim of driver’s license identity theft, secure your driver’s license. Routinely check your driving record. Report to the police as well as the Secretary of State if your license is lost, stolen or missing.
