The next time you renew your Iowa driver’s license or identification card, the card you receive will look a little different. Any cards issued on or after June 2 will have new graphics and security features to help protect your identity.
The key objective is a secure card that protects Iowans from identity theft or fraud. States regularly refresh the look of driver’s licenses and identification cards to incorporate new and advanced security features and to protect against fraud. Iowa’s new cards include security features that thwart counterfeiting and tampering, and decrease the possibility of identity theft or fraud. The cards feature the golden dome of Iowa’s capitol building along with our state motto and include layered security features that protect the cards against fraud or alteration.
