Iowa teenagers could start getting a vertical driver’s license as early as July 1st. Lawmakers are expected to okay an Iowa Department of Transportation request that driver’s licenses for Iowans under the age of 21 be vertical cards, with the picture on the bottom and the stats on the top. The D-O-T’s David Stuz says it’ll make it easier to check I-Ds for entry into bars, or purchase of things like lottery tickets and beer. Stuz says it could make it harder for teenagers to get fake I-Ds. Virginia has had vertical licenses for the under 21 crowd for two years, and Stuz says the move’s been a success.
