IRMO, S.C.  - South Carolina driver's licenses are getting their first overhaul in 16 years.

Gov. Mark Sanford and officials from the Department of Motor Vehicles are showing off the new licenses today at the DMV office in Irmo.

Officials say the new licenses will include several new features to make it tougher to alter them or make a counterfeit copy.

A spokesman for Sanford says the changes will make South Carolina's licenses some of the most secure in the nation.

The state last changed its driver's licenses in 1994.

Could this be due to the many

What a waste of taxpayer dollars. In dire economic times can we not spend dollars on more suitable investments?

Might have something to do

Might have something to do with the license making equipment stolen from the Ascagua Lake road DMV several months ago.

I'd be happy if they just

I'd be happy if they just used better glue to put the front and back together with. My license has been in two pieces for 4 years. I use numerous types of glue in my business and I can't seem to find one that keeps the halves together. I wonder if I've got one of those illegal alien licenses on the back half and an American license on the front half. Incompatible, but strangely legal.
