How can I use the DigiD?

Imagine submitting an electronic application for a permit through your local authority's website. A DigiD login screen will appear, asking for your username and password. If the data is correct, you will be able to proceed in the process.
Similarly and using the very same login code, you can access electronic services from other government agencies too. This is the great advantage of DigiD: obtaining access to an increasing range of services yet only requiring a single login code.
In some situations also an SMS code may be required as additional security.
