mDL Uses in Government


Most federal agencies that require identification for access accept a state-issued driver’s license or identification card for that purpose. An identity-proofing process based on mDLs would increase security and improve audit logging and visitor verification. It is possible that distance exchange of mDL information between an agency employee and a visitor, or an agency desk clerk and a visitor, could streamline the process to allow an mDL holder to receive access privileges to select secure federal buildings and other access points.
