What are the best fake id states?
You see college kids in movies using fake IDs and having a blast, and you think you can do it too.
However, using a fake ID is not that easy. Bouncers have gotten wiser over the years and have learned to identify many fakes. You need to have a quality fake if you want to easily sneak past security. That is easier to do for some states than others.
Why Does the State Matter?
Some states have made it relatively difficult to replicate IDs. For instance, Maine IDs have a notoriously complicated 3D hologram, while New Jersey IDs use many techniques that can only be seen clearly under a blacklight.
Luckily, there are 50 states to choose from. Out of the 50, there are still a few that make it easy to replicate IDs. These are the states that are commonly used for creating fake IDs.
It is also important to remember not to get a fake for the state you are in. Bouncers are more familiar with IDs from the same state, so you run the risk of being caught.
Whichever state you choose, play the part of being someone from that state. Have some knowledge about the state and the details on your fake in case the bouncer gets suspicious and asks questions.
Common States Used for Fake IDs
Here is a list of the top states that make it easy for you to obtain a fake ID:
One of the easiest state IDs to replicate is Ohio’s. The only information you need is the full legal name, date of birth, social security number, legal presence, and Ohio residency. That is all too easy to replicate and should make it easy for you to get access to clubs and bars, especially if you are using it in a different state.
Ohio ID also needs barcodes, magnetic stripes and holograms, which can be slightly difficult for amateurs to replicate.
- Basic information required
- Can be easily replicated
- Holograms are difficult to get right
While the state-specific requirements for an ID from Florida are a little complex, it is still fairly easy for you to make it through an ID check without any glares or suspicions.
There is a unique security feature called OVG or Optically Variable Ghost image. This means your ghost image should turn a purplish color under UV light. Additionally, the characters ‘FL’ should be repeated in a pattern that can turn yellow under UV light.
Also, a hologram of the same characters is to be present at the bottom right. There should also be a duplicate image on the back of your ID along with basic information of the cardholder including license type and DOB.
- Can get access to more than just clubs
- Discounts on being a Florida resident
- State-specified requirements are slightly complex
Another easy state to acquire a fake ID from is Connecticut. According to state requirements, the ID should be a flexible plastic with 1D and 2D barcodes. With the new template, you need iconic figures and invisible lines and patterns on the card. The printing of the card should be done using Teslin with PET lamination.
Along with that, there are to be symbols of the plane and whale in the background, the borders of which must glow in UV light. One important feature is the yellow star, which is to ensure the ID is compliant with the REAL ID act.
- No magnetic stripe at the back
- Easy to replicate
- UV has complex pattern
For a fake ID from Illinois, you need a photo, duh! Not just yours but Lincoln’s as well. Along with that, you need to ensure all the complex micro-printed lines and patterns are there on the ID.
The state seal is to be illustrated in the background right in the center of the ID. A ghost image has to be there of your original photo in UV ink on the back of the card. One of the most important features is the state outline repetition, which should be clearly visible under UV light.
- Can be used in adjacent Illinois states.
- Only Lincoln hat as a security feature in ultraviolet ink
- Scannable code may be difficult to replicate
When you look at a genuine ID from Texas, all it really comes down to is a smooth flat lamination with no raised surfaces. Along with that, it has a magnetic stripe at the back, which will barely be scrutinized if you pick the right time to go to the club or if you are just at the liquor store.
Then, there’s the ultraviolet ink which is supposed to be shiny. ‘Texas’ should be written under the lamination in UV ink. Apart from that, there should be a duplicate ghost image and date of birth printed in UV ink so that they would glow under UV light. Another thing to replicate is the microprint around the state seal and flag, which some bouncers are sure to check.
- Magnetic stripe at the back makes it easy to swipe
- Easily replicable features
- Microprint can be difficult to match
The hospitality state is known for its drinking culture with a 13.3% rate of drinkers. This makes it a plus point for those acquiring a fake ID from this state. A few details of a Mississippi ID include a gold star in the upper right corner and a hard plastic material used in its manufacture. At the back, you should have 1D and 2D scannable barcodes. The rest of the information is basic including your photo, date of birth, height, and your address.
- Basic information is required
- Can be difficult to match Polycarbonate to the DMV standards.
When it comes to boring states like Georgia, bouncers are less likely to be suspicious about IDs from there than other states. However, to make sure your ID does not give away any hint of it being fake, there are a few things you need to consider.
Your mentioned physical description should match the information in the ID. Avoid any spelling errors as that is the biggest giveaway of a forged ID. Apart from that, make sure that the signatures on the ID look as real as they can and that the state-specified watermarks are in place.
- New design is less popular
- Rarely scrutinized state for fake IDs
- Authority signatures may differ
Although people find it relatively easy to get IDs from Pennsylvania, some believe the new changes to be slightly difficult to fake. This state’s IDs are checked with a method termed as ‘FEAR,’ set by the Responsible Alcohol Management Program.
F means feel for glue line, bumpy surface, or pin hole. E means examine for holograms on the back. A is for asking or questioning basic information on the card, and R means return it to the card holder. This method depicts that there is not much that you need to worry about if you are confident, but if you fail the ‘FEAR’ test, you may end up in trouble.
- Simple method of testing
- Minimal requirement of basic information
- Monetary penalty upon getting caught
Profitable IDs for Companies
While there are quite a few states that can be considered easy to acquire a fake ID, there are others that make it relatively difficult. Let us look at the states that are most used when it comes to getting a fake ID and those that make the process complex.
- New York
These are the top states for fake IDs and are profitable for companies as their IDs are easy to fake. The material for these IDs is Teslin or polycarbonate which can be easily obtained. Most of all, these fake ID states have the highest passing rate when it comes to scanning. Many bouncers don’t even scrutinize these IDs as much as other state IDs. You are likely to be safe if you have an ID from any of these states.
- New Hampshire
As we mentioned earlier, while some states ID are easily replicable, others are significantly difficult and not recommended to be obtained from amateurs. The complex IDs are the ones that have technical features that cannot be easily replicated like 3D holograms, signatures, or micro lettering.
