Louisiana recently became one of the first states to lawfully authorize a digital driver’s license as a legitimate form of identification. As of Dec. 22, 2020, LA Wallet has been considered a legal equivalent to a physical license or identification. OTS played a role in the implementation of LA Wallet, which went live for Apple IoS and Android in the summer of 2018.
Per Louisiana law Act 625 (HB481) of the 2016 session, LA Wallet is now accepted by the Louisiana State Police, Louisiana Office of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATC) and other locations statewide. It is 100% legal for driving purposes as well as all for ATC-approved responsible vendors to accept LA Wallet for real-time age verification-required purchases and deliveries.
