New Idaho Driver’s License Phase-in Complete
Idaho’s new driver’s license was introduced in phases over the past few months and the Idaho Transportation Department says that process is now complete and ensures enhanced protection and security to Idaho residents. Not only do the cards have state-of-the-art security features, but they also have a new look and are issued from a central secure location. Idaho is now the 24th state to use the central issuance system. Instead of receiving the card over the counter, customers now receive licenses in the mail within 10 business days of registration. The temporary paper licenses are valid for 30 days and can be used for driving and identity purposes, as they contain the same information as the plastic cards, including a photo and readable barcode. Although, if you still have one of the older licenses ITD says that you do not need to update your license until it expires.
