MorphoTrust USA rolls out new Utah Driver’s License aimed at reducing fraud and identity theft

MorphoTrust USA announced today that the Utah Driver License Division (DLD) has rolled out its new secure driver’s license to Utah residents

Citizen Identity Identity & Security, N.A.

Starting today, residents of Utah will be receiving the brand new, highly secure driver's license when they renew or apply for a new driver's license or ID card. This change stems from a new five-year contract between the Utah DLD and MorphoTrust USA to revamp Utah's driver's license and identification (ID) cards with an updated look-and-feel, including new enhanced security features. The licenses and IDs feature encoded elements such as security backgrounds and barcodes that will reduce driver license fraud and identity theft.

The safety and security of Utah citizens is of utmost importance to us. This new card, which our long-standing partner MorphoTrust has developed and is manufacturing, includes sophisticated features that will allow us to reduce driver's license fraud and identity theft.
Christopher Caras Driver License Division Director

MorphoTrust is delighted to continue to grow our nearly 50-year partnership with the Utah Driver License Division. Our mission is to secure, protect and simplify the lives of the American people and we are privileged to be able to work with the great state of Utah to provide them the enhanced personalized security features and new "look and feel" for their driver's license they required.
