A SMARTPHONE version of the UK driving licence is being developed.
Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency chief executive Oliver Morley posted an image of a “prototype” on social media.
The licence appears as a “pass” in an iPhone’s Apple Wallet app.
Mr Morley said it would be used as an “add-on” to the existing photocard, and insisted that security was “our priority”.
There is no timeline for when the digital licence will be launched.
The paper part of the licence was abolished in June last year as part of the Government’s drive to reduce unnecessary red tape.
