Wisconsin drivers' license/ID cards get a facelift

You may not even recognize your driver’s license and identification card anymore the next time you renew. The Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles announced on Monday new changes to the cards to make them more resistant to fraud. In addition to new design elements and embossments, the new cards will feature transparent windows along the card’s right edge and bottom edge. According to the DMV, Wisconsin is the first in the country to have this security feature that allows a clear ribbon to flow off the edge of the card and be integrated with cardholder data. The upgraded security features will be available on regular and REAL ID cards, which will replace the current ones when you either renew your license or order a replacement through the DMV.
