The premier of Australian state New South Wales (NSW), Mike Baird, has promised a change to digital drivers licenses over the next four years if his Liberal government sees a re-election come voting time.
According to Baird this move will save the state tens of thousands of dollars whilst thrusting NSW into the forefront of digital license technology - allowing users to display their credentials on their smartphones.
Baird has also stated that physical plastic licenses will still be made available to consumers who wish to carry one.
As you're legally obliged to carry a license on you at all times whilst operating a vehicle in Australia, here's hoping that you've got a backup phone battery or portable charger with you - otherwise we could see people gathering fines for having flat phones. Thankfully there is a choice, so as the famous meme says - Why not both?
