The Clovis and Portales Motor Vehicle Division offices are now
issuing new licenses equipped with 12 security features. The New Mexico
Motor Vehicle Division released the new driver’s licenses to protect
the public from identity theft.

The new license procedure now starts with a temporary license first.
Since the secure driver’s license is processed from a central facility,
applicants for licenses will now leave the Clovis and Portales MVD
office with a temporary extension, which they will use with their
hole-punched license until their regular license arrives in the mail
within seven to 10 days.
