Montana May Become First US State to Use Digital Drivers’ Licenses

Montana could become the first U.S. state to allow residents to use digital driver’s licenses on their smartphones..

A bill passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Governor Greg Gianforte would create a voluntary program that would allow residents to store a digital version of their driver’s license on their phone. The digital license would be accepted by law enforcement and other agencies as a valid form of identification..

The bill’s sponsor, Republican state Representative Steve Gunderson, said the digital license would be more convenient and secure than a physical license. He said it would also be more difficult to counterfeit..
