Last month, the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Attorney General hosted the second annual Mississippi Public Safety Summit.  They unveiled the new design to Governor Reeves, Attorney General  Fitch, Commissioner Tindell, and all attendees, including our state’s  law enforcement leaders, prosecutors, and fire chiefs. 

“We are very excited to announce this new design,” said Commissioner Sean Tindell. “We can’t  wait to share it with our residents. Thank you to our friends at Idemia and everyone who has worked on this project.” 

The new design is expected to be available at all driver’s  service locations statewide by July 1, 2024. Licenses  with the old design will remain valid as long as they have not expired. If you would like to have the new design, you can purchase a renewal license.
