LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — An Encino lawmaker is leading an effort in Sacramento to allow drivers to “carry” their license on their smartphoneicon1 What’s In Your Wallet? Calif. Driver’s Licenses Closer To Going Digital.

Democratic Assemblymember Matt Dababneh on Wednesday introduced Assembly Bill 221, which would authorize the DMV to develop a mobileicon1 What’s In Your Wallet? Calif. Driver’s Licenses Closer To Going Digitalapplication whereby a person may access a digital copy of his or her driver license or identification card issued by the DMV.

AB 221 would require built-in safeguards to protect identities from unauthorized access, which Dababneh says will ultimately offer better security than traditional licenses carried in a purse or wallet.

“Obviously, security and privacy will be essential to enact this program,” Dababneh said. “I will be working closely with consumer groups, privacy advocates and digital security experts to ensure that the final product meets the safety standards that Californians expect.”

In order to use the app, individuals would have to apply with the DMV for a secure personal identification number in order to obtain access to the digital drivericon1 What’s In Your Wallet? Calif. Driver’s Licenses Closer To Going Digitallicense or identification card, according to Dababneh.
