How to register to CNH Digital and activate in the Service Portal

Drivers can already use the electronic version of the National Driver's License: CNH Digital. Developed by the Federal Data Processing Service (Serpro), the application is available on iPhone (iOS) and Android phones. In order to use the feature, you must register in the Denatran Services Portal. The procedure is relatively simple, but requires authentica- tions issued by Detran if it does not have a digital certificate.

With the use of the QR Code system, access to the document does not require the use of the Internet and can be done through the Lynx application, also created by Serpro. This is the first civil identification document with digital representation valid in all Brazilian states. The feature has been available since February 2018.

Step 1. First, you need to go to Detran where the CNH was issued to confirm some personal data (if you do not have the digital certificate). Then, access the Denatran Services Portal (//;

Step 2. In the sidebar on the left, click "Register", then fill in the personal data and select "Register". An authentication link will be sent automatically to your email;

Step 5. To complete the process, download the CNH Digital application, available for Android or iPhone (iOS) smartphones.

Anyone who has questions, can watch the instructions on CNH Digital in "Tutorial", on the homepage of the site. If you want to get the CNH Digital without leaving home, drivers will need the digital certificate. Anyone wishing to have the proof must go to Detran responsible for the CNH expedition.

For CNH without QR Code

Portfolios issued prior to May 2017 do not have a QR code and therefore drivers need to request a duplicate of the document. To do this, they should go to Detran, request a new copy (costing R $ 42.42) and update their mobile number and email address. Once the CNH is printed, just follow the authentication steps. With all the requirements met, the driver's license is also valid for the mobile phone.

Digital certificate

It is not mandatory to have the digital certificate to obtain the CNH Digital. However, it is necessary for whatever process is performed by the Internet, without having to attend Detran. Users interested in taking their own digital certificate should look for a certification company, which can charge from $ 164 for the service. On the other hand, for drivers who already own the statement, the process can be done all digitally and for free.

If you do not want to pay for the e-CPF, the request of CNH Digital can be made at a Detran station leading to the original CNH. However, the registration on the Denatran website is still necessary as it informs the code to use in the CNH Digital application.
