MILWAUKEE – Starting this fall, Wisconsin driver’s license cards will no longer be printed in Wisconsin. Instead, the state will outsource the work to a company that will print the cards in California.
The Department of Transportation explained that the change is part of Wisconsin’s plan to implement the federal REAL-ID bill that will require more stringent security features for each driver’s license card. By having a contractor print the cards in California, the Wisconsin DOT expects to save approximately $1.5 million.
