As part of an initiative to provide Louisiana citizens with better personal safety and security practices, the State has worked with Envoc, creators of LA Wallet, to offer digital licenses for free until the end of May 2019.

As indicated by Representative Ted James at a press conference on April 24, 2019, recent reports have indicated that personal safety has become a greater concern regarding rideshares, home delivery, and other online person-to-person activities. This free digital driver’s license initiative by the State and LA Wallet is an effort to provide Louisiana citizens with better tools to validate another citizen’s identity.

“We’re going to start having conversations with Uber and Lyft to make sure that they are forcing their drivers to allow those that have the app to verify that who we get in the car with is actually the person [who is supposed to be] behind that wheel,” said Representative Ted James.

LA Wallet digital identities are retrieved in real-time from the State’s databases, and with VerifyYou, LA Wallet users can scan another LA Wallet user’s license or scan the AAMVA code on the back of a physical license. Within seconds, LA Wallet’s VerifyYousystem validates another citizen’s name, age, and reports whether the license is valid and up-to-date.

LA Wallet digital driver’s licenses are valid for the life of the user’s physical license current issuance, which can be up to 6 years. Once a user’s physical license expires, he or she must renew his or her physical license and purchase a new digital license.
