The cards, available at DDS’ 67 customer service centers, have a modern design and feel with the most secure credentials the state of Georgia has ever issued, DDS officials said in a statement. All previously issued Georgia licenses and ID cards will remain valid until their expiration date. At that time, customers will be issued a newly designed card whether visiting in-person or via the DDS 2 GO mobile app.
The new cards are made of premium polycarbonate to reduce document forgery and protect against identity fraud, state officials said. Perhaps the most dramatic change is the adoption of the new industry best practice of using black and white customer photos on the licenses and IDs. Images are laser engraved, virtually tamper-resistant and increase the overall security of the license, officials said.
The symbolic Georgia peach and outline of the state are also integrated into the design of the card. Under 21 cards remain vertically oriented. The Real ID Homeland Security Star continues to be at the top right corner when applicable.
