CNH Digital: what is it?

The National Digital Driver’s License (CNH Digital) is the same usual CNH document that we obtain printed right after being approved in the direction tests of the DMV of our city, only this time, available in the digital version via cnh digital app.


Thus, we are referring to an application that will allow us to walk with this type of document in a more accessible way, with just a few click scans of your phone. This is great in situation that we may end up forgetting the printed document at home, or simply want more security by leaving documents like this at home.

Prerequisites for use

The prerequisites necessary for you to have this type of application accessible on your mobile device is that, first, the driver has a registration with the Denatran Services Portal.

Prerequisites for use

In addition, you will also need to have the CNH document printed in the new template that allows transposition to the application, that is, that contains the QRCode (this is a scanable code) on the reverse side of the document.

The documents that were issued from 2017 onwards are already with QRCode entered. Thus, if your document is older, just wait for the renewal itself, or request issuance of second life from the Driver’s Center of your city.

IS CNH Digital free?

You will have no cost to download this app on your mobile, since it is 100% free. Only those drivers who have an old version of CNH should pay for a second way if they want to take advantage of this application.


So, as you can see throughout our content today, CNH Digital has come to make our lives easier by optimizing process and allowing us to validate our enable anywhere, even without having the document printed in hand.

If you are a driver, be sure to download this app!
