DVLA said, “committed to developing a digital provisional driving license by 2024”, They claimed that the detail of exactly how this will be implemented is “still under consideration”.

Furthermore, DVLA is creating a “customer account facility”. This service will help customers by providing a “personalised, easy and secure access to a range of services. It may allow them more choice in how they transact” with the organisation.

For the last few years, the DVLA has initiated many online services that opened new and easy ways to get services. Earlier they shared images that explained how a digital license might look like. They suggested that the license could be stored in a phone ‘wallet’ like debit/credit cards, membership cards, train tickets, and various other items.
