Licenses, photo IDs will now arrive in mail


The state will soon be modifying the way it provides driver's licenses and state photo IDs, to comply with tougher federal security rules.

Starting in the next few months, people who want to obtain or renew licenses or IDs won't be able take them home the same day. Instead, they'll be given paper receipts that will be valid as replacements until the new ones arrive in the mail in about 10 business days.

The delay is because the cards will be printed by a California contractor rather than at the Division of Motor Vehicles. The cards will include advanced features such as multiple photos and hidden designs visible only under ultraviolet light.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report ( ) says the changes are intended to help prevent fraud and counterfeiting.
