I am not an expert on the ISO spec, but an earlier version I saw was a set of claims (like a JSON doc) that could be wrapped in another attestation format - like a VC or JWS or both.
I will try and follow up to see if that is still true.

    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
    
    David
