Mobile Driver's License (mDL) Pilot in Iowa

We are excited to announce that after 8 months of concepts, meetings and engineering, we launched the first U.S. Mobile Driver's License in a pilot with the State of Iowa in 2016. The pilot provided us with real user data tested in a wide range of identified use cases.The test group used a downloadable iOS mobile app that required identity verification before the mDL was rendered on the phone. The app and verification process meet the highest standards for security and protection of personal information. 

Take a look at our video to see how it all came about and how you can use this new form of digital identity.


Project Goals

  • Render an mDL
    • Securely pass a rendered mDL to a smartphone
    • Securely render front and back of an Iowa DL/ID in an mDL format

    • Suspend/Revoke the license
    • Update from Under 21 – to Over 21 on their birthday
