Iowa Launches An App For Your Drivers License

These needs to happen in WA ASAP!

TechCrunch

We take our phones with us pretty much everywhere these days. This gave the Iowa Department of Transportation an idea – put the state drivers license on an app.

The app will hold all the same information found on a plastic license. State government authorities such as police and airport security will accept these digital licenses as valid ID.

A PIN is used to verify authenticity of the information. Department of Transportation spokesperson Andrea Henry alluded in a CNN interview that Iowa could possibly use fingerprint or facial recognition software to verify authenticity at a future date.

There could be a few issues with going digital, however. Adding your license to multiple devices is one. The potential for your phone to be dead right when you get pulled over is another. This would obviously make it impossible to prove you are who you say you are unless you can get some juice.
