Arkansas drivers may soon have access to a digital driver’s license in addition to a hard copy. The Arkansas Senate advanced a bill on Monday that would create and offer a digital license as an equivalent to the physical license at traffic stops and the like.

Alongside a physical license drivers could pay $10 for a digital copy provided by the Office of Drivers Services.

The legislation now heads to the House. It is sponsored by State Senator Bill Sample (R-Hot Springs) and State Representative Mike Holcomb (R-Pine Bluff). The bill has near universal bi-partisan support.
