U.S. Driver's License Numbers

This topic provides definitions, validation, and keyword information for supported U.S. driver's license number data identifiers. 

NOTE: MVISION Cloud regex includes an extra backslash to conform with JSON string structure. Naked regex would have only one backslash, but regex in strings requires the extra backslash to be escaped. For more information, see https://www.regular-expressions.info/java.html.
