Georgia DDS Launches Georgia Digital Driver’s License and ID in Apple Wallet

Commissioner Spencer R. Moore has announced that, starting this week, the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) will begin to offer residents the option to add a valid, Georgia-issued driver’s license and ID to their iPhone and Apple Watch. 

Once added, customers can securely present their digital driver’s license and ID using their iPhone or Apple Watch at select Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoints, including those within Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Georgia is the largest state to provide this capability to their residents enabling an easy, fast and secure way for Georgians to present their driver’s license or ID — without needing to take out their physical card.

How to Add a Georgia Digital Driver’s License and ID

To get started, Georgia residents must have a valid and easily readable Georgia driver’s license or ID card, as well as an iPhone 8 or later, , or Apple Watch 4 or later, with the latest version of iOS or watchOS. You must also have your device set to the United States.  

Adding a driver’s license or state ID to Apple Wallet can be done in just a few simple steps. Georgia residents can tap the + button at the top of the screen in Apple Wallet on their iPhone select ‘Driver’s license or State ID,” and follow the on-screen instructions to start the set-up and verification process.

Please note that it could take up to 48 hours for Georgia to appear as an option in Apple Wallet.
