6What kind of information is shared through my mDL?
An mDL is comprised of and designed to share the same data elements as of a physical driver’s license.
7How long is my mDL stored on my device?
After provisioning your mDL, it will remain securely stored onto your device until you delete your downloaded mDL or if you’ve logged out of your LA Wallet account or have unlinked your driver’s license from your LA Wallet account. If you’ve accidently deleted your mDL or it has been cleared by one of the mentioned scenarios, you will be required to go through the enrollment process as well as facial authentication in order to download your mDL again.
8Do I need to carry my physical driver’s license if I’ve downloaded my mDL?
We encourage users to continue to carry a copy of their physical driver’s license. In the event that your digital ID cannot be verified at the TSA security checkpoint, you will be required to present an acceptable physical identity document in order to proceed with the verification process.
