New Ohio license plate, driver's license design

Published: Mon, November 28, 2011 @ 3:45 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Redesigned Ohio license plates and driver’s licenses will be made available in the next two years.

Gov. John Kasich unveiled the new designs at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where the new plate and license were created.

Both feature a simpler design with a small red triangle at the top. The plate has a plain white background, while the license opts for a light blue. Ohioans can go online over the coming months to choose state slogans to adorn the background.

Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Registrar Mike Rankin says the new licenses comply with federal laws passed after 9/11 designed to make them harder to counterfeit.

The driver’s licenses will be available in January 2013, while the new plates will go public December 2012.

This governor is a real idiot. Why does he have to change the license plates and driver licenses? Beause Ohio's real Governor, Governor Strickland's wife designed it. This guy is a pitiful mess.

Hey, as bad as he hates Police Officers....I wonder if there will still be an FOP plate available for the hard working union Police Officers who keep this sorry wealthy republican safe...what a loser!

I agree. In this time of economic crisis, spending money to redesign anything is STUPID! It's time to get back to functionality. If it works, don't fix it.
He reminds me of someone living in the projects trying to drive a Benz, with pimped out rims...

I wouldn't worry about them wasting time on this project. It looks like it took all of 2 minutes to re-design it.

Updating the license plates is a must, as the old plates are peeling off their reflective paints and some of the really old plates have rusted onto their brackets.

Because of security issues today, new driver's licenses must be updated every few years, just like our dollar. This would have happened no matter who was Governor, but some just like to complain so they will be heard.

Drivers Licenses are going to be changing in all states because of a Federal law. They are going to be like International Drivers Licenses. The states don't have a choice.

I am glad they are redesigning the license plates as the current plate is just a little to gay for my tastes. However, I would have thought they would have come up with a plate that had more creativity than looking like the back of an envelope.

Great! now just tell us how much more we will be paying for these "New" designs. If he raises the price on the tags and drivers licenses like Taft did when he was fleecing us, doesn't that qualify as a tax increase?
