Utah ID Update

The Driver License Division in Utah’s Department of Public Safety started issuing new driver’s licenses and state ID cards in June of this year.  The replacement process will take around 5 years.

Utah DPS decided to do this as a security measure.  Like many other states that have done this recently, the goal is to protect its citizens against identity theft and prevent counterfeiting. The new security features on the ID will make it more difficult for the IDs to be replicated. The IDs are also compliant with the Real ID Act. An extra security precaution includes mailing the new IDs from a secure MVA facility, so counterfeiters will have a reduced chance to access the equipment that produces the IDs as well as personal information.

Some of the new features include:

  • Laser perforation
  • Laser engraving
  • Beehive graphic to be embedded into the new cards

The Utah DPS contracted MorphoTrust USA to make the enhancements with a 5 year agreement. Morphotrust USA President and CEO, Bob Eckel stated, “MorphoTrust is delighted to continue to grow our nearly 50-year partnership with the Utah Driver License Division.” “Our mission is to secure, protect and simplify the lives of the American people and we are priveleged to be able to work with the great state of Utah to provide them with the enhanced personalized security features and new ‘look and feel’ for their driver’s license they required.

Please note that this ID update was made available to all of IDScan.net’s software users before the IDs were released and will be avaialble for download here.
