The driving license app is available from 24 Nov. 2020 and has been developed by the Danish Digitization Agency in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, the National Police, the Ministry of Transport and Housing and the Danish Transport Authority.
The driving license app is a voluntary app and is only a supplement to our physical driving license, and works as a valid driving license in Denmark and the physical must be used when we drive abroad. The driving license app does not yet include driver's licenses, taxi licenses and the other business licenses, which must still be brought when driving.
The driving license app download is available via the Danish App Store or Google Play and it requires a valid Danish driving license, a NemID and a valid Danish passport. Our mobile phone must at least have the following requirements: iPhones minimum one iPhone 7 or newer running iOS 13.2 or later and on Android phones, minimum Android 8.0 Oreo or newer and is equipped with NFC.
Driving licenses issued earlier than 18 January 2013 must be renewed no later than 18 January 2033 and subsequently these driving licenses will also be up for renewal every 15 years. The validity of the driving license is valid from the date of issue.
