LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Lasers and intricate designs part of the changes to Kentucky's new ID cards.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has unveiled the new ID cards which will feature black and white images, intricate background designs meant to make duplication difficult and it will all be put onto the cards using laser engraving at a central location.
There will be two cards offered, a basic license that is good for driving but not for flying or accessing government buildings and Voluntary Travel ID that is good for driving, flying and accessing government buildings.
The change to the licensing process comes as the state comes into compliance with the federal Real ID law.
The new credentials will be issued beginning in January with the KYTC phasing them in a few counties at a time.
