Utah Mobile Driver License (mDL) Program
The optional Mobile Driver License (mDL) program is managed by the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Driver License Division (DLD) and provides an official signed copy of your driver license or identification card placed on your mobile device for you to control. Unlike the physical card and barcode, you may limit the data you share with businesses or entities that you interact with.
The mDL was implemented to give you additional convenience and to improve your privacy and control. Privacy protections are built into the software so that no entity can track how you use your mDL, but you have complete transparency into how and where you’ve used your mDL. No data ever leaves your device without your consent. The mDL also gives greater accuracy to the businesses with whom you interact, can eliminate fake IDs, and can lower the incidence of fraudulent purchases, illegal driving, and criminals impersonating citizens.
