BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -
The state is making some changes to Louisiana driver's licenses and ID cards.
While it may look very much the same, the new cards are said to feature greater security, more privacy protection and more resistant to tampering.
The state says the new cards will have multiple layers of security that are all lined to each other. Some of the noticeable ones include tri-color overlay, multi-colored fine line printing and the photo on the card will also have a "ghost" image.
Louisiana last updated the identification cards in 2001.
"We are always looking for ways to better protect Louisiana citizens from fraud and identity theft," said Colonel Mike Edmonson, Department of Public Safety Deputy Secretary. "Enhancing the security features of a Louisiana driver license and identification card reduces the possibility of criminals being able to counterfeit these documents that have become the national standard for identification."
The state says customers do not need to get a new license or ID card until the one they have expires.
OMV Commissioner Stephen Campbell stated, "We expect for all offices to have the new system in place by the end of May 2014. If you obtain a credential at an office that has not been converted to the new system, your license or ID is still valid."
It should take a minimum of four years to phase out the old design.
