First smartphone driver’s license

Iowa could be the first state to offer a smartphone driver’s license, with plans to launch a free app in 2015. According to The Des Moines Register, the license will be a free option alongside a traditional license. Iowa law enforcement offers will recognize the digital license during traffic stops, and airport personnel will accept it during screenings. For security, accessing the license will require a PIN.
