Montana Unveils New Driver’s License

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – A new Montana driver’s license is being rolled out this month.

The makeover is aimed at making it one of the most secure driver’s licenses.

State officials are touting the license’s multiple colors, duplicate photos, textured surface, hidden images and an easily noticed change to identify those too young to buy alcohol.

The license will start replacing the old license this month as people renew their license or get one for the first time.

Dean Roberts, administrator of the Motor Vehicle Division, says the license is among the most secure in the nation.Montana unveils new driver’s license

He says the license features a new surface of microscopic glass beads that cannot be peeled away without destroying the images and information on the license, making it nearly impossible for people to alter a license.
