President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has announced the launch of an electronic driver's license and vehicle registration.

Both services will be available to Ukrainians before year-end, the president said in a video address published on Facebook.

"Now we're all working on our large project of the country's digitalization. The electronic driver’s license and registration will be in your smartphone soon, like, really soon," the president said.

"As early as this year, Ukrainians will be able to start using it. But this is only the beginning," Zelensky added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on October 23, the Cabinet of Ministers agreed to launch a pilot project on the use of an electronic driver's license and vehicle registration, which drivers could present to traffic police instead of actual paperwork. Police will be duly equipped with QR readers to verify digital documents.
