ID card designs

We will soon be issuing new driver license and ID card designs. This new look will better protect residents from fraud and identity theft.

You won’t need to take any special steps if you have a valid license or ID card. All licenses and ID cards will remain valid until their normal expiration date.

For more information, read about New driver license and ID cards.

Temporary ID cards, when issued, are printed on paper and are not valid for identification unless used with another piece of identification.
