It's the spacial coordinates of the CIA satellite assigned to track the movements of that card.

Are those "spatial" coordinates or "special" coordinates?

You have to ask yourself: are you surrounded by space, or by spate?

Based on a description of the magnetic stripe contents, the information below the digitized signature are

  • date of issue (you knew that already)
  • the issuing office number
  • the issuing employee at that office
  • and the expiry (FD = "Fee Due") year

This is awesome info, I've been trying for years to figure out what those numbers meant. 
( I had previously  guessed that they represented the results on driving tests and were in shorthand for law enforcement to be able to quickly read )
  It does make more sense that the numbers on the bottom of a CA license are the dmv office routing #'s.

I just spoke with the CA DMV's public inquiry office (+1-916-657-6560) confirming the above.

probably the drivers license number - the unique identifier for each license.
