The New Look of Our License and Identification Cards

We’ve redesigned our driver licenses and identification cards. The new design helps:

  • prevent counterfeiting
  • reduce the risk of identity theft
  • decrease fraud
  • meet federally recommended security features

Your existing valid driver license or identification card will remain valid until their expiration date. When you renew, you will receive the redesigned card.
