In addition to being practical, the digital CNH also contributes to reducing the use of paper and preserving the environment.
Why use CNH Digital?
The National Driver’s License (CNH) is the document that identifies the driver of motor vehicles. It is a personalized document, valid throughout the national territory, which can only be issued to persons over 12 years of age.
The CNH Digital is the electronic version of the physical driver’s license and has the same legal validity. That is, it replaces the printed version of the document and can be used for legal purposes such as driving or providing proof of identity.
In addition to the convenience of not having to carry the physical CNH whenever you drive, CNH Digital offers more security against fraud and document cloning. That’s because it has a QR code that can be scanned by authorities to confirm the authenticity of the document.
Another advantage is that CNH Digital makes it easier to share your license with third parties, such as car rental companies, for example. Just show the QR code on your cell phone screen to confirm your identity and driving license.
