LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 221, Dababneh. Mobile application: driver’s licenses and identification cards.
Existing law requires the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue to a person a driver’s license as applied for when the department determines that the applicant is lawfully entitled to a license. Existing law requires the license to state specified information, including the true full name, age, and mailing address of the licensee and a brief description and engraved picture or photograph of the licensee for the purpose of identification.
Existing law authorizes the department to issue an identification card to any person attesting to his or her true full name, correct age, and other identifying data as certified by the applicant for the identification card.
This bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to study the feasibility of creating a digital mobile driver’s license application for smartphone use. The bill would require the study to consider the security of personal information, compliance with federal standards, and the limitations of available technology. The bill would require the department to report the results of the study to the Legislature on or before December 1, 2016.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
