D.C.’s drivers licenses are getting a new look, our Post colleague Mike DeBonis reports.

Cherry blossoms are replacing the Capitol building as the background on licenses and identification cards. The changeover will start in November and will incorporate new security features, including laser-engraved photographs. The updated design also comes with a waiting period: about two weeks to get the cards versus being able get them instantly today. Read more here.
