New SC Identification Cards

The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will be issuing a new drivers license and identification card in October 2010.  The new cards have been completely redesigned with multiple levels security features and is designed to be more tamper resistant.  Some of the new features will help deter fraud and identity theft.  The credentials will include a unique serial number tied to the recipient in addition to the ID number.  The laminate is tamper resistant and has holographic images of the state seal, palmetto trees and the SCDMV logo. 

Credentials issued to citizen under the age of 21 will be in a veridical format.  All other will remain in the traditional horizontal format.
