Digitizing driver licenses using mobile phones.

This project started in 2013 by winning the "great potential" prize at Govathon, a City of Atlanta's hackathon that focused on problems that affect the local government and the community. It's only around 2015 that mobile driver license (mDL) technology started becoming a hot topic with the launch of the first US mobile driver license pilot in Iowa. Since then, many states have started evaluating the deployment of mDL technology.

IMPORTANT: Please note this is just an early proof of concept and doesn't include the secure issuance, storage and verification platform initially envisioned by the project owner. In order to build this end-to-end platform, close attention is currently being paid to mDL-related guidelines and standards from the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
