Digital Driver’s Licenses for Arkansans


When you head out the door you can often forget things you need like your driver’s license.

A license available on your phone – that’s what Act 557 lets you do.

The Act passed by Arkansas Legislature on March 21st of this year allows you to have a copy of your license to view on a mobile device or computer. You’ll pay a $10.00 fee for the digital copy at your drivers services office and it won’t expire until your hard copy does. According to the bill, if you get pulled over, you could use your digital copy to identify yourself to police. But as of now, it’ll only work on the ground, not if you’re planning on flying.

If you are flying, you need to use a driver’s license card or a voluntary enhanced security driver’s license. To get a secure driver’s license, you to show your proof of identification, residency, and social security number at the DMV.
