Correct identification of vehicles and vehicle owners is achieved by the vehicle registration process. Registration provides a method to tax vehicle owners efficiently and provides other additional benefits to the state. The vehicle owner is provided with a proof of registration by means of a printed paper. The motor vehicles authorized printing centers provide and distribute the paper registration to carry during vehicle operation.
The common paper version of the vehicle registration can be tampered with as there are few features of the cardstock that provide security and longevity. The current paper version of the registration can be easily torn or smudged.
ID card professionals from the manufacturer of Zebra printers have proposed that vehicle registration cards be printed on plastic cards similar to the current state driver’s license. Benefits to the plastic card over paper are many. Some of the benefits that Zebra has offered for upgrading to a plastic registration card are as follows:
Security. Paper registrations can be easily altered, torn and smudged. Plastic cards are more difficult to tamper with and can be enhanced with various security features, such as a hologram to reduce the amount of fraudulent activities.
Durability. The longevity of a plastic card registration is greater than a document printed on paper. For this reason, employee IDs and driver’s licenses are commonly printed on plastic cardstock rather than a laminated paper or teslin from just a few years back.
Efficient data transmission. Plastic cards can hold information embedded on the card that can easily be transmitted for efficient processing of information. Bar codes, magnetic stripes and embedded information can be used for quickly and accurately providing and transmitting data to record events such as vehicle inspections, vehicle transfers and ticketing. By quickly scanning cards into appropriate readers, the data can accurately be imported into summons papers, inspection reports and other records.
Benefits of the plastic card printing can be worthwhile as increased efficiencies and easy transfer of information can outweigh the costs of the system many times over. Online card printing retailers that provide Zebra card printers are happy to provide a custom printing package to meet your individual small or large card printing needs.
