Wis. Admin. Code Department of Transportation § Trans 102.205 - Copying of driver licenses

Current through November 29, 2021

Any person, including the state or federal government, or an agency or political subdivision thereof, may make a copy of a driver license provided the copy is intended to be used for the identification of the person to whom the license has been issued and the person does not sell or transfer the copies to any third person or include the copy of the driver license photo in any electronic or paper library of images. This provision does not prohibit a lender or business from requesting and making a copy of a driver license as part of an application for credit or other business services and forwarding that copy with the application materials in the ordinary course of business when the commercial paper or business is sold or transferred.
