Florida driver’s licenses to get complete makeover

MIAMI (WSVN) - Florida drivers, get ready for a new look for your licenses beginning in August.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, drivers will be issued new IDs, which are said to be more secure than current IDs. The new card will use a light blue Florida state seal with the letters “FL” in bold font over a white base.

Those with current ID cards and licenses can still use them until they are phased out, said officials.

Transparent backgrounds will be used with headshot images, officials added, and appear in four locations on the ID.

New colors will be used, as well, to differentiate the types of licenses. The colors will be:

  • Blue font: commercial drivers licenses
  • Green font: drivers licenses
  • Red font: identification cards
  • Orange font: learner’s permit
