Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 171.07, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

License; contents.

(a) Upon the payment of the required fee, the
department shall issue to every qualifying applicant a license designating the type or class
of vehicles the applicant is authorized to drive as applied for. This license must bear a
distinguishing number assigned to the licensee; the licensee's full name, date of birth, and
residence address; a description of the licensee in a manner as the commissioner deems
necessary; and the usual signature of the licensee. No license is valid unless it bears
the usual signature of the licensee. Every license must bear a colored photograph or an
electronically produced image of the licensee.

(b) If the United States Postal Service will not deliver mail to the applicant's
residence address as listed on the license, then the applicant shall provide verification from
the United States Postal Service that mail will not be delivered to the applicant's residence
address and that mail will be delivered to a specified alternate mailing address. When an
applicant provides an alternate mailing address under this subdivision, the commissioner
shall use the alternate mailing address in lieu of the applicant's residence address for
all notices and mailings to the applicant.

(c) Every license issued to an applicant under the age of 21 must be of a
distinguishing color and plainly marked "Under-21."

(d) The department shall use processes in issuing a license that prohibit, as nearly as
possible, the ability to alter or reproduce a license, or prohibit the ability to superimpose a
photograph or electronically produced image on a license, without ready detection.

(e) A license issued to an applicant age 65 or over must be plainly marked "senior" if
requested by the applicant.
