Delaware Tests Mobile Driver’s Licenses

(From UPI)

Delaware residents may be among the first in the country to use mobile driver’s licenses after the state’s department of transportation announced Wednesday a pilot program to test the technology.

The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles said it launched a six-month study to test the licenses, which would be accessed on smartphones. With the technology, police would be able to ping a driver’s cellphone for the license and view it before approaching the vehicle during a traffic stop.

The Delaware Department of Transportation said the mobile license can only be unlocked and accessed by the license holder through a personal identification number or facial recognition technology.
