Streamline interstate Department of Motor Vehicles collaboration with Private Blockchain

According to the United States Census Bureau, over 7.9 million Americans moved from one state to another in 2021 alone. One of the tasks an individual must complete when moving from state to state is trading in their driver’s license from their former state of residence for a license in their new state of residence. Each state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is responsible for the issuance and management of driver’s licenses within the state, and this requires collaboration with other state DMVs to gather important data such as traffic offenses occurring out of state. In this post, we discuss how blockchain can streamline driver’s license issuance and foster deeper collaboration between DMVs in all 50 states and why blockchain is a compelling technology choice.
