As I am an official DXCC Card Checker for the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), I am able to check documentation IN PERSON for those who are creating an LOTW account.
The ARRL LOTW website states:
An operator not licensed in the United States requesting an initial Callsign Certificate must provide the following documentation:
a copy of his or her Amateur Radio operating authorization
a copy of one other government-issued document indicating his or her identity, such as a driver's license or the first page of a passport.
This documentation can either be sent by postal mail to the ARRL, or can be presented in person to an in-country ARRL DXCC Card Checker.
I will inspect your documentation and, if accepted, inform ARRL’s LoTW staff that that the applicant’s identity and license have been verified. The ARRL will then send you an email message containing your LOTW Account Password, with your Callsign Certificate attached.
But please remember, the sighting of your documents MUST BE IN PERSON. I cannot accept documentation in the mail.
"PLEASE DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER". This is not my making. The decision relating to checking documentation in person, is an ARRL decision.
I have contacted the ARRL re the possibility of card checkers being able to view copies of documentation not in person. Their response has been that the sighting of the documentation MUST BE IN PERSON at this stage.
The ARRL website has a large amount of information on how to get started with LOTW.
