REAL ID

It's been more than a decade since Congress passed the REAL ID Act. It is based on recommendations from the 9/11 Commission, which set standards for issuing sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.

The last time Florida driver’s licenses were redesigned was in 2003.

In 2017, licenses and state identification cards debuted with a new look and enhanced security features.

Now, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles or FLHSMV, is adding further modifications to the cards.
