NJ Unveils Upgraded Digital Driver’s License

license njWith the backdrop of airline passengers presenting driver’s licenses at security checkpoints to board airplanes, state officials unveiled the new Enhanced Digital Driver’s License that they say puts New Jersey among the top 10 states with the most secure document. The new license will once again allow drivers to renew their licenses by mail or online once during an eight-year renewal cycle, instead of having to do it in person at a Motor Vehicle agency, said Raymond Martinez, state Motor Vehicle Commission chief administrator.

The new license, which will be issued to drivers at their next license renewal, is now being implemented at the MVC’s 39 agencies through a computer upgrade and the MVC’s ability to use facial-recognition technology to fight fraud. It is the end result of a $19 million program to upgrade the MVC’s computer systems, agency hardware and software in order to roll out the new license. More in APP.
