New Delhi: With a motive to reduce paper consumption, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) introduced its plan to launch a smartphone version of driving license.

Oliver Morley, CEO of DVLA, made this announcement by tweeting a picture showing a prototype using Apple's Wallet app on an iPhone.

According to BBC reports. Morley, head of the country's driving authority also clarified that its an 'add-on' and not a replacement for the current photocard.

However, DLVA has not given any tentative dates to launch its digital driving license.

A report published by UK government on the future of its motoring services including DVLA highlights that some of their citizens perform important aspects of their life from a tablet or smartphone.

Keeping this in mind, DVLA has not only abolished the role of paper but also started a series of digital initiatives.
