Colorado chosen to participate in digital driver’s license pilot program

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Do you ever run into the problem of having to dig through your purse or wallet in search of your driver’s license?

Colorado is just a step closer to making sure that doesn’t happen again.

The state’s DMV will participate in a two-year pilot program that will provide digital driver’s licenses – all you have to do is pull out your smartphone and show your license via a mobile app.

The purpose of the program is to improve the way people can securely and conveniently present and prove their identities to businesses and the government.

The program is being funded by a grant from the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Details of the program – such as who can participate or when it will start – have yet to be released.
