Ky. transitions to new driver’s license for better security

GLASGOW — Before the end of the year, driver’s will have a new look to their licenses that officials say will give the licenses more privacy protection and tamper resistance.

In Barren County, the process of instituting a new multi-layer license will start in October, according to circuit court clerk Krissie Coe Fields.

“We’re excited to have the new equipment,” Fields said. “It’s been a long time and we’re having to replace old parts that maybe aren’t made anymore with spare parts to keep the equipment going.”

With the new equipment that will be coming at the end of the year, licenses will be made to include a digital watermark imperceptible to the human eye, “bank note-level fine line printing,” improved dual-side lamination to increase tamper resistance and a hologram with a single-color, ultraviolet “ghost” image, according to a release by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
