Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sometime next year, Iowans will have the option of keeping their state-issued driver’s license on their smartphones and not just their wallets. Melissa Gillett, director of the Iowa Department of Transportation’s motor vehicle division, said state officials have launched a pilot project aimed at making digital driver’s licenses, or “mobile ID,” available for download via Apple and Android smartphone apps sometime in 2022. Iowa is among a number of states that have considered, tested or already launched versions of driver's licenses that live digitally on smartphones.
