Kansas Rolls Out New Driver's License Design

KS Drivers-License-Horizontal

KS-Drivers-License Vertical

The state of Kansas has unveiled a new driver’s license with improved security measures to help fight counterfeiters. It includes new holograms and hidden images that can only be seen under an ultraviolet light. Dean Reynoldson is director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, which investigates ID fraud. Kansas hasn’t had problems in recent years with counterfeit licenses, and Reynoldson says they want to keep it that way.


“The counterfeiters gravitate toward weakling states, those states that have lower-level security features on their cards. So this is an effort to stay ahead them so that they continue to try to counterfeit other states rather than Kansas.”

The improvements will more than double the state’s cost for a license, from about $2 to $5, but officials say the current driver’s license fees will cover the cost. The last time the Kansas license was updated was 2004.
