Augmented identity leader Idemia launched the next generation of Oklahoma’s Mobile ID application, a digital version of the state’s driving license. The company’s new digital identity solution is the result of the latest in a series of partnerships with the state of Oklahoma. The app builds on the state’s existing Mobile ID platform and is now available for download for Android and iOS.

Oklahoma’s Mobile ID app represents states’ growing need and public acceptance of digital identity solutions to reduce in-person services. And while the Mobile ID app is currently only available in Oklahoma, Idemia announced that similar Mobile ID apps will be launched in other states soon.

While Idemia’s new mobile driver’s license (mDL) app features various new use cases, its most notable feature is the REAL ID pre-enrollment function. Thanks to this new feature, Oklahomans will now be able to pre-enroll into the Real ID program by uploading the required documents and answering an online questionnaire. The needed documents, which are outlined in a checklist within the app, can be captured via users’ smartphone cameras.

This automated process promises increased efficiency and convenience as the subsequent in-person transaction times customers would spend at Oklahoma Department of Public Safety offices can be decreased by up to 40 percent. The new digital ID, which acts as a digital supplement to the physical card, addresses the increased need for contactless identification and is fully accepted throughout the state, though people in the state are still required to present a physical driver license to law enforcement on request, a DPS FAQ notes.

Idemia Civil and Mobile ID Senior VP Matt Thompson praised the new digital ID partnership. “There is no better time to bring the residents of Oklahoma a contactless, secure identification option that can facilitate the move to REAL ID and more online services. This technology has the power to shape the future of our experience at the DPS and other government agencies, and Oklahoma is paving the way to the next generation of state-issued identity credentials.”
