Indiana could soon let you use digital driver’s licenses under a new bill (SB 182)

Indiana could soon enter the era of digital driver’s licenses.

One state lawmaker wants to make it a possibility.

Here’s how it would work: You get pulled over by a police officer but you forgot your wallet. If state Sen. Eddie Melton‘s bill passes, you’d could have a digital copy of your driver’s license on your phone.

The bill would allow the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to put your state Identification, learner’s permit or driver’s license onto an app on your phone if you ask them. Melton said a mobile driver’s license would be a convenience for Hoosiers.
