Louisiana digital driver's license app free through May
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana residents seeking to carry their driver's license on their smartphones can download the app and activate their licenses for free through May.
LA Wallet was created in a 2016 state law by Baton Rouge Rep. Ted James. It offers a digital version of the Louisiana driver's license, allowing motorists an option aside from carrying a physical license.
The app normally requires a $5.99 charge to activate the license. But the fee is being removed for the next month, hoping to encourage more people to use the service designed by the state police and Office of Motor Vehicles.
The digital license is good for the life of the issuance. When the physical license expires, motorists will have to renew their license with the state and buy a new digital license.
