New P.E.I. driver’s licence unveiled

Residents of Prince Edward Island got their first look at the province’s redesigned driver’s licence today, which has enhanced security features.The province will start issuing the new licences in November.

The licence will no longer be produced on site, but at a Gemalto factory in Burlington, ON that means drivers won’t be able to get new licences right away anymore. The province confirmed today that  it will take 14 calendar days for the new licence to be delivered by mail.

New security features include laser engraving and micro-printing similar to what is used on banknotes.

Joining together with other provinces on the system will also save money.
