DMV beginning Tuesday, June 13, will phase-in a new program to mail driver licenses and ID cards to customers renewing them or applying for a new one. The agency also will introduce a new design for these credentials as part of a continuing effort to help prevent identity theft.
No longer will licenses and ID cards be handed to someone in the office. More than 25 states nationally now mail these credentials. Although residents still must appear at a DMV or AAA office to renew or apply for them, customers will be given a temporary paper card until the permanent card arrives in the mail.
