The EU proposal for a new digital driving license is extremely interesting.
Europe is moving at a different speed for a while and there are countries moving faster towards digitalization and countries moving slower.
One risk I see with having a digital driving licence is forcing your users to be locked to a platform. With the plastic driving licence, you don’t need a smartphone or battery. This new approach might be an opportunity to introduce a separate digital driving device a user like grandma can use instead of a smartphone.
Or this could be a conversation on how to make the smartphones less intrusive on our privacy and limit the amount of data being collected on its users.
What do you think, do you like the idea of using a digital driving licence instead of the traditional approach?
