ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia is set to become one of the first states to allow driver’s licenses to be carried on smart phones.

The exact timeline hasn’t been announced. But The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the state’s drivers will be among the earliest to be able to use the Apple Wallet app to store their license or state ID card on an iPhone.

The state is also working on a similar option for Android phones, according to the Department of Driver Services.
