Wrong photos issued on Arizona driver permits, IDs

TArizona transportation officials say a new system is to blame for some people getting the wrong picture on their driver’s permit.

KPHO-TV reports that Arizona Motor Vehicles Department director Stacey Stanton says she learned Tuesday that there have been five cases so far of people receiving a license or ID with someone else’s photo and signature.

Stanton says the agency transitioned last week to a new centralized system.

She says a team of employees is examining what could be causing the glitch.

She says officials don’t think it’s a systemic issue and that people’s personal information is still safe.

Anyone who finds an error on their driver’s license or identification card should immediately call the MVD.
