Not really.  As long as you sign it with your public key, and encrypt it
with _their_ public key, the exercise isn't completely pointless.  Only you
(should) have a photo of your driver's license, and only you should have
your secret key, so your signature should be valid if they trust the
driver's license.

I think.

In any case, I can forge your driver's license with GIMP, so nyah.
