A new bill would allow digital driving licenses in Michigan

START, Mich. (WXYZ) – A new bill in the Senate Michigan could allow Michiganders to have their driving license on their phone. The Senate Bill 454, introduced by Sen. Peter Lucido, a Republican part of Macomb County, proposes that the Office of the Secretary of Michigan provide electronic driving licenses.

According to the bill, the electronic license must contain all the information required for a plastic license, and there must be a QR code or similar technology to be scanned, giving the information from that license. A QR code is a machine-readable code that contains black and white squares and stores information that a camera or smart phone can read.

The bill was introduced last month and was presented to the Transition and Infrastructure Committee.
