Driver's license changes coming in January
Dec. 15, 2017
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Driver's license and state ID cards in South Dakota will look a little different beginning in January.
Officials say the changes are being made to make the cards easier to read. The headline on the current license says "Operator License." The new cards will say "Driver License."
KOTA-TV says the gold star on the right upper corner will be a white star with gold around it. That change reflects the new federal ID guidelines for using licenses for air travel and other activities. Another change includes a heart symbol for organ donors.
New equipment is being installed at driver's licensing stations statewide, beginning with Pierre.
