Minister for Transport and Main Roads, Mark Bailey said: “I’m so excited for all Queenslanders to be able to download and use the app.
“Nothing is more important than the safety and security of your private information, which is why we put the app through rigorous privacy and information security testing, including two pilot tests in Townsville and on the Fraser Coast, to ensure your identity is always protected.
“We worked with our counterparts in other Australian states that have Digital Licences, to ensure we learnt from the way they developed and released their apps.
“Queensland’s Digital Licence app will set the standard for mobile driver licence apps across Australia and the world, and is yet another way that Queensland continues to be an innovative pioneer in the digital space.
Businesses, who need to download the Digital Licence Verifier app to support customers who are using the digital licence, has been downloaded nearly 80,000 times. The verifier app allows business owners to scan the QR codes generated by the user’s app to confirm that the information provided is genuine.
The app was developed in Queensland, in partnership with Thales, a defence grade security company, as well as local companies Code Heroes and Aliva.
Unlike the South Australian and New South Wales implementation, the Queensland Digital Licence is aligned to the ISO international standard for digital IDs. This means Queenslanders travelling to other countries that also use the international standard will be able to use their digital licence when required.
