Missouri State Drivers licenses get a new look for the New year

Posted on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 8:41 am

As the New Year gets under way many Missouri drivers, who are renewing or obtaining for the first time, may have noticed changes made to the look and security features of the Missouri Drivers License.

As a means to further protect residents identities, state officials have reconstructed not only the look of the Missouri license but the over all security features it has as well. For example, the new license is now an 16 point system including laser perforations, a ghost image, fine lines through portrait and ghost image, overlapping data onto ghost image, photo, a 2D barcode and several other already existing features. However, those features are minimal compared to the process changes that have been made. No longer are the days of walking into the DMV office, taking a test, a photo and waiting for the license to process.
