ITE119 Digital Driver's Licenses

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

As technology continues to evolve and change everyday, should we expect that Driver's Licenses will eventually make their way to a digital format? The move to digital is already taking place, so it's no longer a question of "if" this will happen. It is now a question of "when". Iowa, is already the first state to implement a digital ID Card for their Driver's License, and other states have started to follow suit and look into this process. It's been reported that states like Maryland and D.C. are now looking into making Driver's Licenses digital, and more are to come.

There are many benefits to a digital ID:

-Quicker to update address and name change. -Will have positive impact to the lines at DMV. -Can be secure in that, the ID can be deleted if your smartphone is lost/stolen. -Stores to your smartphone so you don't have to carry the physical copy.

There's also plenty of negative concerns to consider with a digital ID:

-There's still many people out there that do not have a smartphone. -Many organizations and/or retailers do not recognize a digital ID yet. -If the battery on the smartphone dies, you lose access to your ID.

It would be pretty difficult to see the move to digital take effect sooner than later. There's still many obstacles that stand in the way of going digital, and it's probably best to expect that a digital Driver's License will be acceptable as well as a physical ID.
