La. is 1st State to Launch Digital DL App

Gov. John Bel Edwards has announced that Louisiana’s new digital driver’s license app is available to the public. It will enable an image of a physical Louisiana license to be displayed on cell phones ensuring that Louisiana drivers who have their cell phones will always have access to their license. LA Wallet was created under Louisiana law of Act 625 by Baton Rouge Rep. Ted James.

“Most people never leave home without their smartphone and with this App, they will never be without their driver’s license,” said Gov. Edwards.

 LA Wallet is the first digital driver’s license app to be fully launched in the United States. While there are other apps in development, LA Wallet is the only app with a fully-functioning, open to the public version in the Apple App store.

LA Wallet is free to download, but an in-app purchase of $5.99 activates a citizen’s license or ID for legal acceptance. The digital license is valid for the life of the user’s license issuance. Once a user’s physical license expires, they must renew their license with the OMV and purchase a new digital license through LA Wallet.
