We compare the photo from your driving licence with the photo you took to set up your Yoti using advanced facial recognition software and/or manual verification, and use document verification to confirm that the driving licence belongs to you.
We delete the photo taken from the driving licence up to 7 days after verification. So only you hold a copy of your document.
Additionally, we use your name, address and date of birth to check your identity against an approved UK identity provider. We will ask your permission to do this in the app once you add your driving licence.
