There's an app for just about everything, and now diver's licenses may soon be digital. 

Already several states are testing pilot programs for digital driver's licenses, including the District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware, Colorado, Idaho, and Wyoming. 

Iowa and Louisiana are planning to issues digital licenses to every driver who wants one starting this year. For security purposes, the digital licenses will be protected by passwords, pins and other features. Obtaining a digital driver's license is strictly optional, and states will continue issuing traditional plastic license to all motorists.
