Expect new look when you renew.

On April 15, the Texas Department Of Public Safety began producing a new version of the Texas Driver License (shown above).  Redesigned in an effort to combat counterfeiting, photo swapping, tampering and other types of fraud, the new license design contains several new security features, which the Texas Department Of Public Safety would not discuss.  Expect to receive the new license with the Austin Skyline at the top when you renew your license or if you're getting your first one or replacing a lost or stolen card.  The current design will be phased out as the licenses expire.

If you need to renew your Texas Driver License or have questions about them, please visit the Texas Department Of Public Safety's website.
