S.C. DMV issues first new driver's licenses, state IDs in 16 years

Well, here's the new license in all its glory.

Under 21 IDs will be rotated to a vertical format so they can be easily spotted.

The new cards will be available online by February 1, 2011 and they will be appearing in local offices by November of this year. According to the department, you do not need to replace your current driver’s license or identification card until it expires.

You can read all about the new card on the DMVs release page (check out the links on the bottom.)

The new licenses are not part of the Real ID program and contain no RFID chip.
