Tampa Bay’s Morning Krew

Weekdays 5:30am - 10:00am

It feels as though we JUST got a new license, now there is going to be a new NEW drivers license getting introduced.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) issued a statement saying changes include the removal of the magnetic strip on the back of the ID cards, which will add a tactile security feature to the front. The modified cards will provide Floridians with the most secure over-the-counter credential.

The new, modified driver’s license or ID card will be starting as soon as August.

I hope this doesn’t become required… at least until my Drivers License expires…  8 years!
