Here’s how Florida’s new digital drivers license will work

Orlando, Fla. — The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles(FLHSMV) hopes to launch their new mobile driver license option beginning next month, and they have laid out a basic idea of how its going to work.

According to their website, they say the Florida Smart ID is in an optional app tool and not a replacement for your physical ID card, which you still need to keep on you when you are driving a car. Once you download the app and authenticate your ID, all you need do is open the app, select the verification type you need depending on your situation, and then have the person scan the displayed QR/barcode on your smart device to get that info.

They say in the future, they hope to partner with Apple to have this feature included in the Apple wallet.
