MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state of Wisconsin is introducing new driver’s licenses and identification cards later this month that officials believe are more secure.

The state Department of Transportation says implementation of the new cards starts in late September, with plans to finish the rollout throughout the state by Nov. 1. Ann Perry, director of the Division of Motor Vehicles’ Bureau of Driver Services, said in a news release that the new cards are “the most secure in North America.”

The cards have a black-and-white, laser-engraved photo of the cardholder. They also have raised features that the Department of Transportation says can easily be felt and are difficult to copy.

Cardholders don’t have to get new ones until current cards expire. The procedure for getting the cards remains the same.
