It’s been in the works for years, and now the state of Florida is hoping that digital driver’s licenses will be available next month.

It’s exactly what it sounds like. Florida drivers would be able to show proof of ID on an app. It wouldn’t be a full replacement, so drivers, to operate a vehicle, would still need a physical driver’s license.

Terrence Samuel, with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said there will be a QR code, “And when you scan that, what will happen is it will pull the relevant information, your identification or your driver’s license information, and send it to you and also the person that’s requesting it.”

The state said they are also working with Apple to have the feature in the Apple Wallet.
