CDT is an application that loads digital versions of CNH and CRLV with the same legal value as printed documents. Once configured, the application can be used as a means of personal and vehicle identification if a transit agent requests it. No need to load the printed document along with the virtual just the app enough. Downloading the free software doesn't have to pay anything or go to a physical service point to validate the documentation. The whole process performed by the smartphone.
It is possible to order digital versions of CNH and CRLV through the application on the mobile phone. To login, I need to use CPF and the password of gov.br, new platform that unifies the user authentication in the Federal Government services. If the citizen has not yet registered online, it is possible to create one on the spot by tapping the "Login with gov.br" option.
Once with account access, I need to register with the document printed in hands. You can configure only CNH, only CRLV, or both. The application shows a virtual copy of the document on the mobile phone, which serves as a means of identification. In addition, I need to display a QR Code (barcode species) for the transit agent as a means of validating the app.

What are the advantages for the citizen?
The Digital Transit Wallet (CDT) is not required, but offers some important advantages for those who want to enable the virtual version of documents. In addition to having the same official value as the print version, it is always available offline on the phone (only need connection to set up for the first time) and serves as a precaution if the citizen forgets to take the CNH with you. Driving without holding the license commits an infraction that yields a fine of R $ 88.38, three points in the wallet and retention of the vehicle.
The application can also generate a PDF version of the digitally signed driver and vehicle documents. According to the National Traffic Department (Denatran), the digital copy has the same validity as a physical copy authenticated in a cartridge.

What if the traffic agent doesn't accept it?
Denatran Ordinance 184 and Contran Resolutions 684 and 720 ensure that the transit agent is obliged to accept the Digital Wallet. Verification is by reading the QR Code generated by the application: the authority only needs a mobile phone to read the code and prove its authenticity. If the guard or police officer refuses to accept the document solely because it is in digital form, Denatran recommends that you register the incident with the appropriate transit agency.
How to know if the Digital Transit Wallet (CDT) is authentic?
Anyone can know if a CNH or digital CRLV is valid. To do this, simply download the free app Vio (formerly called Lynx), which is able to read the QR Code generated by the Digital Wallet Transit app.
Once the authenticity of the document is confirmed, the veracity of the driver and vehicle documents is also verified. According to Denatran, the app reflects the current status of both CNH and CRLV if one of the documents is not valid, it does not even appear on the smartphone.

Is it possible to have CDT on more than one phone?
No. A person's Digital Wallet can only be linked to one device at a time. Similar to WhatsApp: By registering the app in your name on a second device, the previous one automatically stops working, losing its validity and no longer displaying documents.
Is it possible to have more than one CDT registered on the same phone?
No. Similarly, it is also not possible to have more than one CNH or CRLV in the same Digital Wallet application unless the user appeals to tricks that clone mobile apps at their own risk.
