Senator Connor presenting SB 3096 on the Senate floorSPRINGFIELD – Illinois residents could have the option to have their driver’s license on their phones thanks to efforts of State Senator John Connor (D-Lockport).

“By introducing the option for driver’s licenses to be digital, we could open the doors for easier travel across the state and country,” said Connor. “Having the access to your license from a cellphone keeps important documents from being lost or damaged.”

Senate Bill 3096 requires the Secretary of State to lay the foundation for the implementation of digital driver’s licenses in Illinois, with a report laying out the choices and features of systems available, along with an analysis of national standards and how other states are preparing for this feature. The Secretary of State will report the findings to the General Assembly by the end of 2022.

“We need national standards for digital driver’s license apps so that when Illinois chooses a system, that system will be compatible with systems in all other states and the TSA for air travel, and will allow Illinois residents the best features coupled with privacy and security,” Connor said.” This report will allow informed decisions and bring Illinois a step closer to a digital driver’s license app for all Illinoisans.”

Senate Bill 3096 passed the Senate Friday.
