License App Booted From Apple App Store

Sorry kids, you can no longer make your own driver’s license with an app from the Apple App Store.  This is probably a good thing.

The “License” application by DriversEd.com for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad allowed users to electronically insert any digital photo and the biographic information of their choosing into a template for a driver’s license of a state of their choosing. The “License” application contained templates for driver’s licenses for all 50 states, many of which were of designs that would be valid for the next several years. The user was then able to send the high quality digital image of the completed template to an email account. From the email attachment, the image could then be printed and laminated, creating a high quality counterfeit driver’s license difficult to discern from one that’s genuine.

This was a free app that had been available for over two years.
