LA Wallet will allow you to keep a digital representation of your current Louisiana-issued state ID or driver's license. The app will generate a unique image that is 100% Legal for driving purposes per Louisiana law of Act 625 of the 2016 session and approved by the Louisiana ATC for age-restricted purchases at various local restaurants, bars, and retail outlets. Once a user activates their current, valid license in LA Wallet, the digital driver’s license is valid for the life of the user’s current identity credential issuance. When the user’s physical license expires, they must renew their license with the OMV or through the LA Wallet app, if eligible. Additionally, LA Wallet offers the paid service VerifyYou™ Pro, an age-verification tool that helps keep businesses ATC compliant when offering home delivery of age-restricted goods.

What’s New

Version 2.0

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) licenses are coming to LA Wallet! Starting October 18, 2021, you will be able to add your Louisiana hunting and fishing licenses easily by tapping the credential in the card stack on our newly re-designed homepage.

LA Wallet’s new homepage now displays a card stack for all your credentials available in LA Wallet, including your Louisiana Digital Driver’s License or State ID, LDWF Credentials (coming October 2021), and your SMART Health Card.

Additionally, LA Wallet’s SMART Health Card now has a button to refresh the SMART Health Card to retrieve any recent vaccinations or boosters that are available for you. You can share your SMART Health Card to CommonPass, Apple Health, or other health apps that support SMART Health Cards. Users who have trouble retrieving their vaccination records from the Louisiana Department of Health can now tap Health Card Assistance in the menu to get support with locating your information.

As always, you are in complete control of your information in LA Wallet. Your information is only stored on your device, can be removed at any time, and is only shared with those you choose to share it with.

I couldn’t get the VerifyYou to load my info

All in all, it’s fairly easy to use. I’m not sure if I did something wrong, but I couldn’t get it to load my information found with the VerifyYou feature. While trying to add my info in order to purchase a usage license for the app, I scanned the back of my current drivers license. It brought up my info but only offered a “Dismiss” option. I still had to manually enter in all my info in order to register and pay. That was the only problem I had with the whole process. I haven’t read all the fine print yet, but a suggestion I’d offer is for the app to send you a reminder 30 days before your license expire. (That may already be available and I just haven’t noticed it yet.)

Great start, needs a major update for Wallet App

I was able to get an account created and have my state issued license on my phone within about 3 minutes. There is a cost of $5.99, but well worth the hassle if caught without my ID. I can leave home with nothing more than my phone and feel safe and be legal. However, this app needs a major update to add the ID to the Wallet App of the phone. Most police officers take driver’s IDs back to their vehicle. Not everyone feels comfortable handing a police officer their phone - especially unlocked and out of sight. Adding the ID to the Wallet app with remedy this as the phone will be locked during this time of accessed from the lock screen.

Thanks for the review, gwh34t. We also appreciate your feature requests, including to have it added to the Wallet app of the phone. More than a few others have requested this at our site where ever request is personally reviewed. Please keep up with your app updates, as are adding features that address your concerns in a forthcoming update. Again, be sure to visit to learn more about the "hands-off" and "no-touch" practices that accompany LA Wallet and law enforcement.

Need to Upload LA Covid Vax but Still Have Out of State License

I am currently a New Orleans resident. Own my home. Moved to NOLA a few months ago, and received my Covid Vaccine in NOLA, which I would like to upload here. I still, however, have my out-of-state license. Please don’t tell me that I have to change my DL in order to use this app and upload my Covid vaccination.

Now the developer has responded that other states do not allow LA Wallet to upload out-of-state licenses (mine is from DC). Well, it turns out that there are other apps, like NYC Covid Safe (from New York, obviously) which allow licenses from anywhere, and which is an app that is easier to use than this one. Additionally, that app is perfectly fine for use in states other than NY. I’ll be using it instead. It seems that it is LA Wallet that is limited.

Hi Hunter, I am sorry but other states do not allow Louisiana's LA Wallet to add out-of-state licenses. For the best experience, you need to officially become a Louisianan. Surely, that will be worth a 5-star rating.
