& # 39; So it is legal to drive a car, but not to buy alcohol? & # 39; Indignation as holders of a digital driving license, the service at bottle shops and car rental is refused
- The digital license scheme as an easier way to wear identification
- Residents have claimed that stores do not accept the licenses as valid proof of identity
- Liquorland has placed a notice stating that they do not accept digital licenses as IDs
Furious digital driving license holders have wondered why the new form of identification is accepted by the police but rejected in bottle stores.
The South Australian government introduced digital licenses in 2017, giving residents access to important identification on their phones without a physical copy.
But state residents have lashed out on the social media schedule and react angrily after their new forms of identification are discovered, are not accepted in Liquorland.

Frustrated South Australians went to social media after a photo of the digital ID ban on Liquorland was posted online.
& # 39; So it is legal to drive a car, but not to buy alcohol, & # 39; posted a person on social media.
& # 39; I DJ on the RAAF basis and they won't accept it either. Australia Post is another place where I have had problems, & shared another.
& # 39; Not legal when renting a car & # 39 ;, a third person wrote.

& # 39; Many people today don't have a wallet with them … they have their driver's license on their phone, their bank and so on, & # 39; told catering company Simon Harley ABC.
Mr. Harley also said it can be a problem for staff who receive angry customers.
& # 39; They get a bit upset if they don't get service … employees can abuse a little.
But another social media user who went further into the problem suggested that the digital license is only for identification by the police.
& # 39; Your physical copy says that & # 39; use of this permit / license for identification purposes, other than for checking traffic rules, is not intended or authorized and is solely at the user's risk & # 39;, & # 39; they explained.

& # 39; So I would imagine that the digital copy is only meant for traffic rules. If you buy alcohol, you must be 18 years or older, therefore you have a & # 39; proof of age & # 39; … so it's really no surprise that Liquorland does not accept the digital license as proof of age, because it is not. & # 39;
A Coles Liquor spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that SA retailers are not required to accept digital cards and licenses.
& # 39; Currently, Coles Liquor does not accept digital versions of identification in South Australia. & # 39;
While South Australia was the first Australian state to attempt digital identification, selected areas in New South Wales will follow later this year, including the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Albury and Dubbo.
State governments in Western Australia, Victoria and Queensland are also considering litigation.
