Hi All

I spoke with the UK Driving License Authority today and it appears that
an ISO standard for electronic driving licenses is nearly completed. It is

ISO 18013 part 5

It is out for ballot at the moment I believe.

Even though I am a member of BSI I cannot get a copy without being a
member of the working group (which I am not). But I understand that the
draft standard does not mention W3C Verifiable Credentials nor propose
to use our technology for electronic driving licenses. This would be a
huge missed opportunity if governments all around the world (including
the US, as I understand Virginia has piloted a system already) start to
issue electronic driving licenses that are not VC compatible.

Is anyone in our group a member of an ISO member body and could either
get a look at the standard, or even better, suggest that W3C VCs are one
of the mechanisms to be used for publishing electronic driving licenses
to users

Kind regards
