A mobile driver's license is a digital license issued using a smartphone application. In September 2019, South Korea's science ministry lifted regulations on the mobile authentication service through a regulatory sandbox. In June 2020, South Korea's three mobile carriers -- SK Telecom, KT, and LG Uplus -- have launched a digital driver's license service through "PASS," a personal identity verification app. The app also allows convenience store operators to verify the age of owners through the digital driver's license.
Shinhan Bank said in a statement on April 8 that the mobile driver's license service will be adopted to receive all banking services including opening bank accounts and transferring foreign currency. "Through the mobile driver's license service, customers who visit our branches can conveniently receive banking services," an unnamed Shinhan Bank official said in a statement on April 8.
