Colorado participating in digital driver's license pilot program

DENVER - Colorado is one of the states participating in a two-year pilot program for a digital driver's license.

Cybersecurity company Gemalto is designing and testing the pilot program that would eventually make your traditional license obsolete. In its place would be a cell phone app.

The technology would also give users the ability to limit what information they show in certain situations. For example, you could make the whole license available to a police officer, while only showing your photo and date of birth to a store clerk.

The digital licenses will be more secure than ever, requiring a pin or fingerprint verification.

It will also make it difficult to have a fake ID.
