Digital Driver's Licenses Get the Green Light

Gov. Holcomb signed a bill allowing the Indiana BMV to offer a secure, digital driver's license app Hoosiers can have on their phones.

INDIANAPOLIS -- You'll soon be able to carry a copy of your driver's license on your cell phone.

Gov. Holcomb has signed a bill allowing the Indiana BMV to offer a secure, digital driver's license app to go with your plastic card. 

How would it work? Instead of digging around for your ID at the bar or during a traffic stop, you would just grab your cell phone and pull up the app.

The Indiana BMV will pay for the program, but the cost is still undetermined.

The BMV hopes to do a pilot program in 2020 with help from states that already have the licenses, like Louisiana.

The digital driver's license app should be ready for Hoosiers to use by 2021.
