Colorado has been selected to pilot a digital version of a driver's license. The two-year pilot project will produce a mobile app which would display the digital license. No start date for the project has been announced, but the program is run through the U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology. The hope is for the digital license to be convenient, with less risk for loss or forgetting it at home. Idaho, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. are also piloting the technology.
