The Spanish DGT (General Directorate of Traffic) launched some time ago the miDGT application, with which we can have our driving license saved on our iPhone. You can download it for free from the App Store, compatible with iPhone and iOS 11 onwards. You can now use miDGT to replace your physical card, also taking advantage of a multitude of additional information and data. With apps like this one and initiatives like CarKey to have the car keys on the iPhone, we will soon forget about wallets and keys in favor of our terminal.
Our Xataka colleagues published a complete review on how to use it on an Android terminal (where the miDGT app is also available), but you can use it since the registration method is exactly the same as on iOS. It is enough to have a suitably configured electronic DNI, a [email protected] PIN or a permanent key to identify ourselves.
miDGT on the iPhone has all the information on your vehicles at the touch of a finger
In addition to the driving license, the application also shows how many points you have on the card and all the information of the vehicles in your name including notifications of thefts, registrations, cancellations and insurance modifications. We can even generate a QR code from the driver’s license, in case a sensor needs it.
Additionally, we will see other information such as the expiration date of the ITV of our vehicle, its environmental label and the date on which you registered the insurance. It is a great resource to have all the information at hand without having to resort to papers, receipts and documentation that can get lost too often.
Taking into account the absurd bureaucracy that sometimes surrounds this type of official documentation in Spain, miDGT is a big step to be able to have our official documentation on the iPhone being, in addition, legally valid. Of course, the app has plenty of room for improvement, although it is fully functional.
