Land Transportation Office (LTO) Chief Jose Arturo Tugade has just revealed that the agency along with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is set to launch a digital version of the driver’s license.

LTO – Digital Driver’s License

The digital license aims to replace the use of the official receipt (OR) as a temporary driver’s license. As such, the digital license can be used for different transactions including license and registration renewals.

“The advantage of the digital license is that motorists can present it to law enforcement officers during apprehension. It is equivalent to presenting the physical driver’s license,” Tugade said.

Additionally, the digital version will be integrated into the eGov Super App which is under development by the DICT. The app is said to be where you can access all your government IDs within your smartphone.

“We also appreciate the way the super app functions similarly to a wallet, containing all government IDs, among other things, within your mobile device,” he added.

The LTO chief didn’t reveal a timeline for when we can expect the digital driver’s licenses though.

The agency announced a shortage of cards that has forced it to print temporary driver’s licenses for those that renew. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) tapped the National Printing Office (NPO) to help aid the shortage.
