Marylanders Can Now Add Driver’s Licenses to Apple Wallet: Here’s How

Maryland becomes the second state to offer driver’s license and state ID in Apple Wallet.

The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration launched Maryland Mobile ID in Apple Wallet, providing Marylanders with an easy, fast, and secure digital version of their MDOT MVA-issued driver’s license or state ID card.

Maryland residents can add their driver’s license or state identification card to Apple Wallet and seamlessly and securely present it using iPhone or Apple Watch at select airport security checkpoints at local airports.

The feature is only available to individuals with a valid Maryland-issued driver’s license or ID and serves as a companion to the physical, plastic driver’s license or ID.  It is not a replacement, and Marylanders must continue to carry their physical driver’s license or ID.

How to add Maryland Mobile ID to Apple Wallet

According to MDOT MVA:

To enroll and use Maryland Mobile ID in Apple Wallet, Maryland residents must have a valid and easily readable Maryland driver’s license or ID card, as well as an iPhone 8 or later, or an Apple Watch Series 4 or later, with the latest version of iOS or watchOS. You must also live in Maryland and have your device set to United States.

Adding Maryland Mobile ID to Apple Wallet can be done in just a few simple steps. Maryland 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.
