    UK driving licenses may be added to Passbook

    News in brief

    Drivers in the UK may soon be able to store their driver’s license in Apple’s Passbook wallet, according to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). “There’s no telling when, or indeed if, the idea will make it to release,” SlashGear reports. “Right now, this is a prototype with no timescale for an actual release and were that to pan out, it would be offered in addition to, not replacing, the regular photo card.”

      This idea is so powerful and so easy to implement that delay is unconscionable. Add a QR tag to the app and law enforcement can check validity, currency, wants, and warrants at the vehicle door. “Renewals” can be relegated to the past.

      I hope the government will also add concessionary bus passes to Apple Wallet/Passbook.
