Kentucky to use tamper-resistant driver’s licenses www.privateofficer.com
Frankfort KY Aug 4 2012 Kentucky is transitioning to a new tamper-resistant driver’s license that is expected to provide more security and protection of privacy.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced announced that the first counties to offer the new licenses include Jefferson (Dixie Highway branch), Anderson, Bourbon, McCracken, McLean, Pulaski and Warren. McLean begins issuing the new licenses Tuesday. The other five counties will start before the end of August.
Other counties will begin issuing the new licenses by October.
The license has multiple layers of security features, including a digital watermark imperceptible to the human eye, bank note-level fine line printing, dual-side lamination for greater tamper resistance and durability and a hologram with single-color, ultraviolet “ghost” image.
