Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 8) — The Land Transportation Office (LTO) is set to launch an electronic version of driver’s license and merge it with the eGov Super App created by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).

“The advantage of the digital license is that motorists can present it to law enforcement officers during apprehension. It is equivalent to presenting the physical driver's license," LTO chief Jay Art Tugade said Monday in a statement.

"We also appreciate the way the super app functions similarly to a wallet, containing all government IDs, among other things, within your mobile device,” he added.

The digital driver’s license may also be used in license and registration renewals and online payment transactions, among others, Tugade said.

He also said security measures of the digital license will be incorporated into the existing system of the physical version and the eGov Super App.

The LTO earlier announced that it will print driver’s license on paper as it runs out of plastic cards.

In December 2022, the DICT launched the eGov Super App in collaboration with other government agencies.

The app features an integration of E-Local Government Units (ELGU), eGov App, EGovpay, E-Travel, and E-Cloud, among others.
