(Indianapolis, Ind.)  --  Driver's licenses in Indiana will be getting a new design, available online and at all BMV branches by mid-July. 

The new cards are Real ID-compliant and are also more durable and tamper-resistant.

Color photos will be replaced with black-and-white laser-engraved text and photos that reportedly work better with facial recognition technology.  Driver's licenses will have an Indy-style race car in the background and state IDs will have a picture of a cardinal. 

As is the case with Indiana's current license cards, drivers under the age of 18 will get a vertically-formatted card as opposed to the horizontal one that those 21 and over will receive.
