Allow Ability to Take Your Own ID Photo
No votes left
Allow users to take their own face photo from the app utilizing phone camera. The photo would be submitted for approval of course, once approved photo would be used on the license as opposed to going into the office to take a new photo.

Hi @Will. That is a great idea. I personally know of a few people that went to the Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) to retake their photo because they didn't like the one presented in LA Wallet. A new set of approvals would have to be enabled with the OMV such that they would review the previous in-person or approved photo and compare it to the new one presented for approval by the LA Wallet user. We will speak to our OMV contacts about your idea. Thanks very much.
Great idea. DMV photos are notoriously horrid.
i like this app

This could be a dangerous issue, someone could take a picture of someone else and put it with that other person's name unless there was a way to completely keep that from happening.
I think this is a good idea because it allows you to update your picture. I have lost a lot of weight since my last photo and have been questioned if it was really me in the picture (I had the gastric sleeve surgery). It is a pain to go to the DMV just to redo the picture on your ID.
I don't think the photo taken on app should replace photo taken at DMV, too many ways to manipulate. However, I believe that there should be an option to add a recent picture to app to supplement DMV pic. Several people don't look anything like DMV pic from changing hair color/style, major weight changes, makeup. This would assist with "that doesn't look anyrhing like you"
I don't think this would work. Too many duck lipped pictures. LOL
I'm not sure about this one. An individual's appearance may be significantly altered by adjustment of the camera angle. All photos should be taken under specific guidelines.

Very useful I like it
Sometimes you need a picture of the identification and you can't take one with la wallet
This will be convenient if passed!
Terrible idea!!! Just another way for people to create fraud and steal your identity.
