New design for NMI driver’s license

THE Department of Public Safety has launched a newly designed CNMI driver’s license.

Asked if the new design is Real ID compliant, DPS spokesman Dre Pangelinan said “this is one part of the step we are taking toward Real ID compliant.”

The Real ID Act passed by U.S. Congress in 2005 “sets standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.”

Pangelinan said the CNMI is not Real ID Compliant yet. “We are waiting for the Department of Homeland Security to inspect and certify the process and machines at our Bureau of Motor Vehicles,” he added.

A sample of the newly designed driver’s license was requested from DPS, but it had not been provided as of press time Wednesday evening.
