Utah Mobile Driving Licence Pilot
The Utah Department of Public Safety’s Driver License Division (DLD) is taking the first steps toward moving Utahns’ identities out of their wallets and into the 21st century with the initiation of a mobile driving licence (mDL) and identification card pilot program with Scytáles, together with our international partner GET Group North America.
In addition to the convenience aspect of adding the primary form of identification to Utahns’ mobile phones, the primary benefit the mDL will offer Utahns is enhanced privacy by minimizing the amount of personal data they share, in contrast to what they now share when handing over a physical card.
Utah’s mDL will be the first in the US that will incorporate the industry standards established for privacy, security, interoperability, and authenticity. The pilot program is now ready to begin with approximately 100 select participants and will expand to 10,000 participants including the broader public until the end of 2021.
