New Texas drivers license

Recommended Posts

For reference here is the old (current) one:

And the new one unveiled today:

To the unfamiliar, the new one depicts the Austin skyline. No hodgepodge of other cities buildings. I've been reading the Dallas Morning News and Houston Chronicle forums and it's pretty funny how up in arms they are about the design. I mean I can see their point a little bit. If I was born and raised in say, San Antonio, I would certainly scratch my head over the fact my license depicts a city a hundred miles away I may or may not be familiar with. They should have stuck with the clip art crap they put on the license plates, you know oil derricks, armadillos, bluebonnets, cow skulls, etc...

i dont think it should have the skyline of the capital city on there.

Seems similar to a lot of the state quarters, where, like California's, they feature one location not representative of the rest of the state.

Michigan's drivers license has a picture of the Mackinac Bridge on it, which is almost 300 miles north of where I live, so I understand the unfamiliar landmark issue. I have never been to the Mackinac Bridge. Strangely enough I have been to Austin!

new york license is pretty good. on the top it says new york state and under it it NYC all the way to the right, the sun rising over the horizon to the left of the skyline, the apllalachian mountains in the middle, and niagra falls all the way to the left. lisence plate is basically the same with nyc in one corner and niagra falls in the other corner. under all he info is the pictur that is on the state flag in blue and orange. and then theres hologram wave though it and inlayed cicles with stars over everything.

Old and New:

That license looks like it's from 30 years ago. I had no idea everyone's ID's weren't as technologically advanced as Massachusetts' to be honest with y'all.

Major downgrade IMO. It looks really weak, and everything is out of place. The old one looks crisper.

Harrisburg: the anchor of southeast Pennsylvania. Where everyone is an organ donor!

On the whole Skyline issue. On the new alternate Michigan license plate, the top has the Detroit skyline. I haven't heard any complaints on that issue here.

I'm not a fan of using something specific to one city from the state, even if its the capital. Living in PA, I would hate to see a skyline from say Philly, Harrisburg, or GOD FORBID Pittsburgh...I'd be embarrassed to show my license anywhere. I'm embarrassed enough that our capital city is a dump like Harrisburg?!?! and I really don't think they have a skyline at all anyway...

The new Ontario licences are full of holograms and tiny unique type among other things... all sorts of crazy security features
