Colorado's driver's licenses are getting a new look.

The pastel blue and purple mountains and italicized font are being replaced with green and blue mountains and a bold, capitalized font. The background has swirling and zig-zagging lines across it to help prevent counterfeiting.

The design was unveiled in late February.

The Littleton, Aurora and Frisco state driver license offices have been piloting the new design since the beginning of March. The rest of the state's DMV offices will start a two-week rollout of the newly designed driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards beginning April 6, 2016. 

Each office will be closed one day prior to issuing the new design to allow for the installation of new equipment and for training.

Colorado residents should continue to use their valid driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with the current design through their expiration date.
