Driver’s license? There’s an app to carry that in Louisiana

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana residents can now carry their driver’s license on their smartphone.

News outlets report a new phone app offers a digital version of the Louisiana driver’s license, allowing motorists an option aside from carrying a physical license.

The smartphone app is called LA Wallet . It was created through a 2016 state law.

Though the app is free to download, a $5.99 charge is required to activate the license. Once activated, LA Wallet enables cellphones to display an image of the physical driver’s license.

The digital license is good for the life of the issuance. When the physical license expires, motorists will have to renew their license with the state Office of Motor Vehicles and buy a new digital license.

The legislation was sponsored by Baton Rouge Democrat Rep. Ted James.
