The state Division of Motor Vehicles is making some major changes for residents applying for a new driver license or ID card. Jim Miller of the DOT said they’re going to look different, with a green background and new holograms and other security features.

Miller says people won’t get the new “central issuance” cards right away, because a California company is now printing them. Applicants will get a receipt, and it will take about 10 days for the card to be delivered. Miller said they started the new process in many DMV locations this week and it will be in all of them by May. Everyone will have one of the new IDs within eight years, through the normal license renewal process.
