DPS Director Col. Stanley E. Clark says, "The changes will give law enforcement improved resources for verifying the authenticity of Texas-issued driver licenses and identification cards, while combating counterfeiting, photo swapping, tampering and other types of fraud."
Production of the new cards began April 15 for customers receiving new, renewal or duplicate licenses and ID cards.
Current driver licenses and ID cards will be phased out as they expire. The last redesign for most licenses and IDs was in June 2001.
