Delaware aims to beat out Iowa, be first with digital licenses

The Daily Times reports that the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles is studying the issue after the Legislature adopted a resolution last week.

State officials say digital driver’s licenses won’t eliminate hard plastic licenses, but would give drivers more options and convenience.

DMV Director Jennifer Cohan, also the governor’s nominee for secretary of transportation, says if meetings about the idea go well the next couple weeks, Delaware could begin testing out the idea “sooner rather than later.”

Iowa is also trying to become the first state to offer digital driver’s licenses and is now crafting its pilot program.
