July 20th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) today announced the launch of a new digital driver’s license pilot program.

The digital driver's license serves as a secure companion version of a physical card and features highly secure, innovative, and easy-to-use technology. This launch follows Maryland being recognized for having the most secure driver’s license in the nation last summer.


“We are proud to be on the leading edge of testing technology that will deliver the driver's license of the future," said MDOT Secretary Pete K. Rahn. “This innovative technology will increase customer convenience and enhance safeguards to our already secure driver’s licenses.” 


In this pilot program, MDOT MVA is collaborating with Gemalto – a Maryland company and world leader in digital security and the manufacturer of Maryland Secure ID, the highly popular driver’s license and ID.  This pilot program is a two-year effort funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
