South Korea will run a trial of "mobile driver's licenses" from 2022.
A senior finance ministry official said Friday that having a driver's license stored on smartphones will help them verify their identities more easily both online and offline.
He added this system will be tested in a few regions.
There are also plans to expand the range of mobile IDs available.
Blockchain technology will be used to protect personal information.
