Delaware may allow for digital driver's licenses
Last month, I wrote about the state of Iowa considering whether to allow residents to use a mobile application to pull up their drivers license.
Now, Delaware is also considering whether to become the first state to offer a “virtual driver’s license” through a mobile application.
“If it works for Delaware, then it will be a new option for Delaware citizens to show proof of driver’s license and identification.” – Jennifer Cohan, director of the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles
The vendor, MorphoTrust USA, also works with Iowa on creating their proposed mobile application.
The proposed mobile application in Delaware would have all the information that a current drivers license has and would require “facial, fingerprint or voice recognition, in addition to a personal-identification code to ensure only the ID holder may gain access.”
Much like Iowa, Delaware is already telling residents that they would not eliminate their current drivers licenses. Those who want to keep their license could do so going forward.
