More than a license . . .
advancements make this the most secure card Florida has ever
issued. This technology includes a 2-D barcode, magnetic stripe,
digitized portrait image, signature, and various security
features. Florida’s image is depicted with a beach scene
and the state seal.
The "under 21" driver licenses and identification
cards reflect major changes. The new vertical format is immediately
recognizable. The card holder's 21st birthday is indicated
in the photo image area.
The cards are created using a new, updated digital imaging
process. This process stores all the information from the
front of the card in a 2-D barcode and magnetic stripe located
on the back. Driver license class, restrictions, conditions,
and endorsements specific to the driver are printed on the
Previously issued Florida driver licenses and identification
cards remain valid until their expiration dates.
